What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes refers to a blood sugar level that is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If prediabetes is not diagnosed and managed, could lead to type 2 diabetes.3

23.6% OF MALAYSIANS HAVE PREDIABETES

Risks

Being diagnosed with prediabetes indicates the starting of progression to type 2 diabetes which will cause irreversible long-term damage to your heart, blood vessels, eyes, and kidneys.

Prevention

There is good news. By assessing your prediabetes risk level and making the necessary lifestyle changes, such as adopting a healthy diet, increasing physical activity, and achieving weight loss, you can lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.4

MEAL PLANNER

Specially customised calorie-controlled meal plans created using evidence-based nutrition recommendations5-6 with the goal of helping you figure out your ideal and balanced breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

These meal plans are designed to provide a balanced distribution of nutrients that help support optimal health, including:

Carbohydrates (45-60% of daily energy intake)
Protein (15-20% of daily energy intake)
Fat (25-35% of daily energy intake)
Saturated fat (less than 7% of total calories)
Fiber (20-30g/day)
Sodium (less than 2400mg/day)

All meal plans will have a low glycemic load (GL) which helps to reduce post-meal blood sugar spikes. Glycemic load is a measure that takes into account the amount of carbohydrates in a portion of food and how fast it raises blood sugar levels.
