If you been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, or have been told your blood sugars are high, you've probably being given the advice to lose weight and get active, right? Up until now this has been the general advice, but as more and more research is put into the growing diabetes rates in the UK and US, medical professionals are discovering targeted diets help more than simply losing weight.

A recent study into the effects of certain food groups on blood sugars and insulin resistance has revealed that those with pre-diabetes would benefit greatly from a diet high in oily fish and nuts, which contain a lot of polyunsaturated fats. Avoiding saturated fats helps the body to start absorbing the necessary insulin into the muscles, which is slowed down when you have pre-diabetes, and can lead to type 2 diabetes.

There is more information on the particular study here.
