Daily Piece: Prediabetes Turning It Around

Being a person having had prediabetes (and having had a life long struggle with emotional eating), I was greatly encouraged by a recent study that show lifestyle interventions work for a group of older adults with prediabetes to prevent develop of Type 2 diabetes. In the study of 2,575 women and men 60 years of age and older, 36% (918 people) had prediabetes. Only 13% (119 people) who began study with elevated glucose went on to develop diabetes. 22% (204 people) had glucose levels return to normal range. I just love the quote by Ying Shang, lead study author, “progressing to diabetes is not the only destination.” Below is link to study.
