Posted: Sunday, January 03, 2010
Diabetes prevention likely resides in the restoration of Normal Glucose Regulation (NGR) rather than in the maintenance of a high-risk state, such as pre-diabetes. Therefore, it is encouraging to note that nearly one quarter of the study participants achieved NGR within the 3-year study window. Over half of those patients did so in the first year, so for the most part, those who succeed in having NGR restored will do so relatively quickly.
