Worried about prediabetes?
Prediabetes is also known as borderline diabetes. It is a metabolic condition in which the amount of glucose in the blood is higher than normal, but not yet at the level at which diabetes is diagnosed.
Prediabetes is closely linked to obesity and one in three adults in the UK is thought to have the condition. If not treated effectively, prediabetes can develop into type 2 diabetes, which is associated with serious long-term health complications.
Being diagnosed with prediabetes can be frightening, but with lifestyle changes, weight management and specialist support you can reverse the condition. The London Diabetes Centre offers cutting-edge screening, expert education and the support that will help you to reverse prediabetes and protect your future health.
Prediabetes, when discovered early, is a crucial stage for the prevention of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle changes and dietary modifications at this time can help slow down or prevent the development of diabetes.
It is possible to take decisive action on your own, however it can be tough without support and guidance. The London Diabetes Centre provides customised dietary advice and a helping hand at every step of the way.
A dedicated team of experienced consultants, dietitians, and diabetes specialist nurses will work closely with you to provide nutritional advice, set targets, advise on safe exercise programmes and monitor your progress.
