Glucophage or Precose to PREVENT type 2 diabetes
There's now more interest in using Glucophage or Precose to PREVENT type 2 diabetes...when lifestyle changes aren't enough.
This goes along with the new emphasis on managing patients with pre-diabetes...postprandial glucose levels 140 to 199 mg/dL or fasting levels 110 to 125 mg/dL.
Lifestyle changes are the most effective. Modest exercise and weight loss reduce the risk of developing diabetes almost 60%.
