Prediabetes Reversal: Can you put prediabetes in remission?

Lifestyle modifications such as following a healthy diet, being physically active and losing weight can all help reduce your blood glucose levels and acheive a non-prediabetic HbA1c, and lead to prediabetes remission.

Prediabetes remission occurs when your HbA1c is below 42mmol/mol (6%) without the use of medications.


Being overweight or obese is a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes, particularly if you are carrying extra weight around your tummy. Regular exercise can make a difference to your weight, especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle.

No matter what form of exercise you decide to take you can make a positive impact on your weight, in combination with a healthy diet. A weight loss of 5%-10% of body fat can improve your blood sugar levels and help reverse prediabetes.


People with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes need to ensure what they eat does not raise their blood glucose levels.

Correct portion control, drinking alcohol in moderation and avoiding sugary food and drink are all parts of a healthy diet.

In particular, avoiding foods high in refined and processed carbohydrates is important as these foods can cause high spikes in blood sugar.

It can be hard to make and sustain a healthy lifestyle, especially if it involves changing your regular habits.

Approved by the NHS, the award-winning Low Carb Program has helped thousands of members make the transition to a low carb lifestyle and acheive prediabetes remission.
