It’s been known for years that lifestyle medicine is the standard of care for prediabetes but unfortunately, too few medical doctors prescribe it. Many patients want a pill and the the medical community has been too willing to write the prescription. Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis and now online clients of the Hypnosis Health Info Internet Office are learning neurohypnosis so that they can make the lifestyle changes to support health and wellness. You too can learn self hypnosis and have a large amount of no desire for the foods that make you fat and sick.

Lifestyle Medicine Is the
Standard of Care for Prediabetes
For people with prediabetes, lifestyle modification is now considered the cornerstone of diabetes prevention. Diet-wise, that means individuals with prediabetes, or diabetes diabetes, should aim to reduce their intake of excess calories, saturated fat, and trans fat.
Too many of us consume a diet with too many of these solid fats as well as added sugars. Thankfully the latest dietary guidelines aim to shift consumption towards more plant-based foods.
Lifestyle modification is now the foundation of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology guidelines, the European Diabetes Association guidelines, as well as the official standards of care for the American Diabetes Association. Dietary strategies include reduced intake of fat, and increased intake of fiber, meaning unrefined plant foods, including whole grains.
That’s based on research like this. We’ve known eating lots of whole grains has associated with reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This recent study took it further, demonstrating that whole grain consumption may also protect against prediabetes in the first place.
To help prevent diabetics from dying, recommendations should focus on the reduction of saturated fat, cholesterol, and trans fat intake (that’s code for meat and dairy, eggs, and junk food), and increases in omega 3’s soluble fiber, and phytosterols, all three of which can be found packaged in flax seeds, for example, an efficient but still uncommon intervention for prediabetes. They found that about 2 tablespoons of ground flax a day decreased insulin resistance, which is the hallmark of the disease.
So if the standards of care for all the major diabetes groups says that lifestyle is the preferred treatment for prediabetes because it’s so safe and highly effective, why don’t more doctors do it?
