What is the best diet for prediabetes?

The Virta Clinical Team

A low carbohydrate diet is the ideal diet for prediabetes. This is because prediabetes occurs when glucose levels start to rise and the body produces insulin to try and lower the glucose levels. If the body cannot produce enough insulin or if the insulin level that the body is producing is not enough to meet the demands of the high glucose load, then glucose levels continue to rise.

A low carbohydrate diet can lower blood glucose levels and maintain a low blood glucose level.
