Delay Diabetes for Four Years to Improve Long-Term Health

Delay Diabetes for Four Years to Improve Long-Term Health

People with prediabetes can lower their risk of dying and having serious health problems if they delay getting diabetes for just four years. A study by Guangwei Li and his team at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital found these results and published them in PLOS Medicine.

Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease that can cause death and disability. It also costs a lot of money to treat. Changing your lifestyle, like eating healthy and exercising more, can help people with prediabetes avoid getting diabetes. But, until now, it wasn’t clear how long you need to delay diabetes to see these benefits.
