As an endocrinologist specialising in diabetes and metabolic health, I treat people with all types of diabetes and related metabolic conditions such as obesity and polycystic ovary syndrome.
All types of diabetes are, by definition, conditions of carbohydrate intolerance. I therefore suggest that people consider making dietary changes to enable them to achieve more stable glucose levels. This typically means avoiding sugar and large portions of starchy foods where possible. See the section on Low Carb advice for more information.
For people with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, my focus is to encourage lifestyle change as a key part of their management plan, where appropriate to help achieve remission of the condition. I also recommend medication where appropriate, tailored to individual need.
