The emergence of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) as a major health issue over the past few decades has made it necessary to set up protocols to prevent or defer its onset especially in genetically predisposed individuals. Prediabetic state has become a very common condition that indicates a blood sugar level higher than the normal levels in the human body. More than 100 million Americans has prediabetes or diabetes[1]. Without any form of intervention, 37% of the prediabetic individuals will develop diabetes in 4 years. Prediabetes is now recognized as a reversible condition. Hence, increased awareness and lifestyle interventions in terms of exercise and dietary modifications seem to be of much benefit for this group to help prevent a largely preventable disease. This study which was conducted over a period of 6 months is designed to explore the role of beneficial lifestyle modifications in prediabetics.
