Pre-diabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. It's often a warning sign, but with the right nutritional guidance, lifestyle changes can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Berry Street's personalized care focuses on nutritional strategies to support healthy blood sugar management.
Pre-diabetes often has no clear symptoms, making it challenging to detect without proper testing. However, working with a Berry Street dietitian can help address risk factors such as:
Overweight or obesity
Lack of physical activity
Family history of diabetes
High blood pressure
Guided nutrition support can effectively reduce these risks and promote overall health and well-being.
Pre-diabetes often results from insulin resistance, where the body's cells don't respond normally to insulin. Factors like genetics, age, inactivity, and diet play a role. Personalized nutrition therapy can provide the guidance needed to make positive dietary and lifestyle changes.
If left unmanaged, pre-diabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and other health complications. Berry Street's personalized nutritional therapy focuses on minimizing these risks by helping individuals adopt a healthy lifestyle.
