Prediabetes is a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than the normal range, but not quite high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. While the name is new, the condition is not, and millions of people have it. Those with prediabetes will most likely ultimately develop diabetes-but the process can be stopped.
The Complete Diabetes Prevention Plan is a guide to halting the development of diabetes. In clear, accessible language, it explains what prediabetes is, who is most at risk, the stages of diabetes, and how the disease process can be arrested. It provides dietary guidelines for preventing diabetes, weight-loss tips, and exercise suggestions. In addition, the book features 150 easy and appealing recipes that emphasize good carbs, healthful fats, and controlled calories-all crucial elements in a diabetes-fighting diet.
