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 Dr.JP Kotla Medical 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.
Most people with prediabetes are totally unaware that they have the condition. It usually presents with no warning signs or symptoms until it progresses into type 2 diabetes.
The Dr.JP Kotla Medical Centre offers specialist screening for prediabetes, so that it can be identified at an early stage and you can be supported to reverse the condition. Blood tests available to evaluate:
- Your fasting blood glucose level
- HbA1c, your average blood glucose over the previous 3 months, with results available in the clinic in less than 10 minutes.
An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) to check your blood glucose response after a sugar drink.
