Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your query and here is my advice.

Prediabetes is where your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes.

The exact cause of prediabetes is unknown, but it’s associated with insulin resistance.
A person with prediabetes has blood sugar levels that are high but not yet within the diabetes ranges. There is still time to control the levels and prevent diabetes from developing.

Still i would like to know about your recent sugar levels ,so that i can help you in a better way.

Till then kindly follow a proper diabetic diet, exercise regularly, and lose your weight if you are overweight.
Completely stop Alcohol and smoking if you do it.

Completely avoid fast foods , oily and spicy foods, sugar-sweetened drinks , foods with high levels of added sugar, such as candy , foods rich in refined carbohydrates, such as french fries ,red and processed meat ,Excessive amounts of saturated fats .etc

You should have a diet which is
high in fiber, low in added sugars, dense in nutrients.

Eat a lot of vegetables and citrus fruits green and leafy veggies are best. Consume whole grains, sprouts, lean meats , eggs yellow , legumes , healthy fats.
Make use of spices like ginger,clove,garlic,fenugreek in your diet.

Drink plenty of water and use unsweetened herbal teas.

Regular exercise like walking, jogging,biking,swimming and yoga meditation will help you a lot.
