How to Reverse Pre Diabetes Naturally?

Pre diabetes is a diagnosis that's telling us to make a lifestyle change. We can reverse pre diabetes naturally by making changes that will improve our health and eliminate the risk of developing diabetes (Type 2).

I changed my eating habits. I joined that with some physical activity. With a touch of determination, I started losing weight. I felt good about myself and I reduced my blood glucose level. I will share my experience and knowledge with you so you can also reverse pre diabetes naturally.

Our body is able to heal itself. However, sometimes when we neglect our bodies by feeding it the wrong foods, our body doesn't get the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs. As a result, we compromise our body's ability to heal itself.

You have been to the doctor and had your checkup. He informs you that your blood glucose is borderline. My blood glucose was 111 mg/dl on my first checkup. The normal range for blood glucose is 70-100. As long as I keep it lower than 100 mg/dl, I'm fine. As soon as I go over the 100 mark, I'm already pre diabetic.

So what does pre diabetes mean and what's happening in our body now? It means that our body is experiencing dysfunctional glucose metabolism. In other words, the hormone insulin is not working properly.

Normal metabolism is:
  • We eat food

  • The digestion process breaks down the carbohydrate part into simple sugars much of which is glucose (blood sugar).

  • Glucose enters the blood. The pancreas produces insulin to manage the distribution of sugar throughout the body.

  • Insulin opens the doors of the cell for the glucose. Some of the glucose is converted to short-term energy for immediate cell use, and some is stored as long-term energy (fat) for later use.

The food we eat has enormous influence on our health. The right diet not only prevents but also treats diabetes. What then is the "right diet" you ask?  My diet consists of low-fat, high-fiber, and high carbohydrate foods which are preventing the likelihood of diabetes.  If you take any drugs prescribed by your doctor, there is a good possibility that you will get off your drugs too.

My first checkup was in January.  By September:
  • My blood glucose was at 92 mg/dl

  • I succeeded in losing almost 30 pounds

  • I brought my blood pressure down to normal.

I realize that you and I don't have the same metabolism or body structure.  We do have one thing in common, this "magnificent machine" that is our body. If you start feeding it the right foods and exercise it, your body will start rewarding you.   You will become healthier, have more energy,  get rid of excess weight ,and reverse pre diabetes in the process.

It's that simple.

  1. Shlomo,
    You make a very good point about the correlation between our weight and pre-diabetes. I think so many times a pre-diabetes or diabetes diagnosis is the wake up call that many of us need, but I hate that we aren't as motivated to lose weight for health reasons until the diagnosis makes it real. Thanks for sharing your journey and inspiring the rest of us!

  2. Yeah, I guess only when it touches you and you see the numbers you act. But, even then many people keep ignoring it.

  3. I have seen so many examples of people who ate wrong, received bad news from their doctor, then became determined enough to reverse pre diabetes naturally. They ate right, they exercised, and they reversed their problem. The key, however, is that they were determined.

  4. You are right. What I found to be the most important thing for me, is to maintain what I accomplished. It's so easy to get back to where you were, which I guess translates to determenation.

Low-Carb Diet Not All It’s Cut Out to Be

While there is very little doubt that consuming less carbohydrates is an effective way to lose weight and prevent or treat pre-diabetes, there’s a problem with a strict low-carb diet such as the Atkins diet. The fact is, most people simply can’t stay on it for very long.

Get Your Clues From Mother Nature

Mother Nature’s way of making sure that you get the right balance of nutrients in your diet is the reason for food cravings. You can’t live on calories alone. You need vitamins, minerals, proteins, and certain kinds of fats in your diet to stay healthy. Most of the foods we eat contain nutrients that are necessary for good health. When your diet falls short of providing some vital nutrients, your body lets you know by causing a craving for foods that contain what’s missing.

Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber that are essential to good health. Meat and dairy products are rich sources of protein and fats that you can’t live without. There’…

American Diabetes Association Alert Day®

Are You at Risk?American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a one-day "wake-up call" asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. In 2015, Alert Day will take place on Tuesday, March 24.


The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for pre-diabetes or diabetes type 2 . Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.

Why Is Your Body Not Able to Keep Your Blood Sugar Levels From Rising?

It took me a while until I was able to see the big picture how my pre diabetes, my diet, insulin, beta cells, and diabetes all related to each other. Once I connected all the pieces of the puzzle, I had a clear idea how to proceed to reverse my pre diabetes and not develop diabetes.


Diabetes occurs when your body loses its ability to keep your blood sugar levels from rising too high. Since 1970, obesity rates have skyrocketed along with an epidemic of diabetes in adults. As scientists have learned more about the cause of diabetes, it has become apparent that adult-onset diabetes (diabetes type 2) and obesity are just different manifestations of the same disease process. Some doctors call it “diabisity”. It’s clear what brings on adult-onset diabetes, and why so many people are overweight today.

The development of insulin as medication has been an important achievement of modern medicine. Insulin has saved many lives of both children and young people with type 1 diabetes since the 1920s.…
