Prediabetes, characterized by elevated blood glucose levels that are below the diagnostic threshold for diabetes, poses a significant health challenge worldwide due to its association with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus. This abstract explores the crucial role of lifestyle modifications in the effective management of prediabetes, emphasizing a holistic approach to prevent or delay the progression to overt diabetes. The primary focus of this review is on lifestyle interventions, including dietary changes, regular physical activity, and weight management, as key strategies to address the underlying factors contributing to insulin resistance and impaired glucose metabolism. Evidence from clinical studies underscores the efficacy of these interventions in improving insulin sensitivity, promoting weight loss, and stabilizing blood glucose levels among individuals with prediabetes. Furthermore, the abstract highlights the importance of personalized and sustainable lifestyle modifications, considering individual preferences, cultural influences, and socioeconomic factors. Behavioral interventions, such as motivational coaching and support groups, are discussed as essential components to facilitate long-term adherence to healthy lifestyle practices. In conclusion, this article advocates for a comprehensive and patient-centered approach to managing prediabetes, with a strong emphasis on lifestyle modifications. By empowering individuals with prediabetes to make sustainable changes in their daily habits, there is a promising avenue to curb the progression to type 2 diabetes and improve overall health outcomes.
