Pre-Diabetes and Doctor Questions

Posted on: October 14, 2011

This week’s question is: I was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes.  Could you tell me what questions I should be asking my doctor in order for me to be successful in the prevention of type 2 diabetes?

Weight control and changes to your diet are going to be key in preventing type 2 diabetes.   If you plan to start a workout routine, it would be good to consult with your doctor on the types of exercise strategies that would be best for you.  A Registered Dietitian would be able to assist you with modifying your diet.  If you do not have access to a Registered Dietitian, then you may ask your doctor for some guidance on how to modify your diet. 

Some dietary strategies would be to reduce your calorie and fat intake.  In addition, choose more foods that contain whole grains and that are high in fiber.
