Defining Diagnosis and Management of Prediabetes

September 2008
Travel Medicine Advisor;Sep2008 Supplement, Vol. 18, p1
This article reports on a consensus statement on the diagnosis and management of prediabetes issued by the American College of Endocrinology in 2008. The guideline was prompted by evidence that complications of diabetes begin early in the progression from normal glucose tolerance to frank diabetes. It recommends intensive lifestyle management for pre-diabetes patients, including weight reduction, regular moderate-intensity physical activity and a diet low in total saturated fat and transfatty acids.
