Can type 2 diabetes be prevented?
Most people who develop type 2 diabetes do so very slowly. This period is sometimes called pre-diabetes. Lifestyle changes such as eating a low-fat healthy diet, being physically active and losing weight if you are overweight or obese can help to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. For people who have been diagnosed, these lifestyle changes can make it easier for them to control blood glucose levels and stay healthy.
