Q.

Pre-diabetic

If you suspect that you are pre-diabetic can you change this to normal or only manage it? I was tested and my score was 6.2mml - fasting. Can this be reduced with a healthier eating plan and exercising or only be maintained?

Hi

Glucose levels can be reduced(lowered into the normal range even) by following a healthy diet along with more exercise and weight loss. If you do lower it, then you need to maintain the changes though
