If i am  diagnosed with pre-diabetes can you eat right and exercise enough for it to go away?
Eating right and exercise along with positive life style changes is fundamental to management of pre-diabetes, but may not be enough. A more comprehesive approach involves specific treatment to improve insulin sensitivity and balancing of metabolic parameters that includes homones and vitamin optimization.

Hello sir, I am suffering from diabetes, want to know how to reduce it? please guide me.
tips to control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-helps lowering blood pressure and cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-improves metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-, improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:- Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet.

Dear lybrate user, firstly remember that supplements which are used for weight enhancement or fat burners which are used for weight loss are all toxic to the liver. They are unnatural synthetic substances which increase bulk by wrong mechanisms. Your body will gain only by what you do naturally. Just hit the gym and increase your muscle mass- bulk will automatically follow.

Mr Ritesh, In T2 DM foot care is very vital. High blood glucose affect circulation to the lower limbs and leads to neuropathic problems, which in turn cause cold feet, loss of sensation and injury to the fot may go unnoticed. Hence primary requirement is to have excellent blood glucose control. If feet feel cold, use socks at home all the while. Do not walk bare foot at home or outside. Use well fitting footwear, do not use high heels, ill fitting shoes, pointed shoes. Watch your feet daily, clean them dry including in the web space, use pumice stone to remove rough portions, do not cut callouses, wash foot every day and dry completely. Avoid sitting cross legged,as it blocks circulation. Basically take a good care of your feet.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.
