The most effective method for prevention of diabetes in a pre-diabetic patient is improvement in life style. Thus, methods of nursing management rely on diabetes prevention education. A pre-diabetic patient needs to receive accurate diagnosis and undergo regular checkups focusing on diabetes through physician counseling. As diabetes education focuses on habit improvement including dietary therapy, exercise, and weight maintenance, efforts are needed to decrease risk factors of diabetes. Pre-diabetes education helps to prevent diabetes. Hence, general diabetes education and support should start in the pre-diabetic stage.
Key Words: Diabetes prevention education, Lifestyle modification, Pre-diabetic patients
