About 1 in 3 Americans has prediabetes, but only 1 in 10 knows it. What works best to prevent it from becoming full-blown diabetes, medication or diet and exercise?
I often hear that the diet and exercise intervention is described as 60% effective. That's almost twice as much cash as the medication, but that other study really showed that it can be more than 100% in the people who actually do it. So diet and exercise are 100% effective or only 60% effective? On a population scale, since many people do not, it may only be 60% effective. But at the individual level, if you want to know what the chances are that you do not have diabetes if you change your lifestyle, the answer to 100% is more accurate. Lifestyle interventions only work when we do them. Kale is only healthy if it really comes into our mouths. It is not healthy to be sitting on the shelf.
