Can you reverse prediabetes with diet?

Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar is higher than whatÔÇÖs considered normal, but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes. A healthy diet is essential to reversing prediabetes.

There are no foods, herbs, drinks, or supplements that lower blood sugar. Only medication and exercise can.

Learn which foods you can add to your diet plan. You may be able to prevent prediabetes or type 2 diabetes by adding more of these foods, spices, and drinks into your diet. Eat them as healthy alternatives to sugar, high GI carbohydrates, or other treats.


Garlic┬áhas potential to help manage blood sugar.┬áReports┬áshow garlic intake can lower fasting blood glucose, which is your blood sugar level when you havenÔÇÖt eaten. Similar┬ástudies┬áalso suggest that onions have positive effects on blood sugar levels.

Apple cider vinegar

The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar reduces certain enzymes in the stomach. Some research suggests that apple cider vinegar can improve insulin sensitivity after meals.

Here are some other foods that are healthy:

  • Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and chard
  • Whole grains
  • Eggs
  • Tuna, halibut, and fish with omega-3 fatty acids
To prevent diabetes and prediabetes through your diet, avoid foods that have a high GI score. Also lower the amount of total carbohydrates and sugar that you consume. Low GI foods are foods that have a score of 55 or less.
