Healthy lifestyle changes can help manage or reverse prediabetes, prevent or delay diabetes, and allow you to feel more in control of your health:

  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet.
  • Exercise regularly. Aim for at least 150 minutes a week.
  • Learn healthy ways to cope with stress.
  • Take steps to manage other health conditions, such as high blood pressure.
  • Quit smoking.

If you need extra support, a lifestyle change program may give you the boost you need to make the lifestyle changes permanent.
