What is Prediabaid?

Prediabaid is a smart device App dedicated to helping its subscribers manage their prediabetes risks through a coaching program. It provides participants with:

  • a one-on-one e-coaching through daily short videos (individual progress monitoring, diet, exercise and behavioral advice, scientific explanations);
  • weekly gourmet menus and weekly exercise plans;
  • wireless connected devices (impedancemeter scale, glucometer, pedometer) to monitor their blood sugar levels and weight in real time;
  • daily feedback from a highly specialized team led by diabetes expert and Prediabaid founder Reginald Allouche;
  • weekly outcome reports.

How long will I have to remain on the Prediabaid program?

As all CDC-approved Diabetes Prevention programs, the Prediabaid program is a 12-month lifestyle change program as 12 months is the ideal time frame for the implementation of lasting results.

It begins with 4 months of Intensive Coaching, followed by an 8-month Maintenance Plan.

Is there clinical evidence that the Prediabaid method works?

The Prediabaid nutritional method has been validated by diabetes expert Reginald Allouche throughout his 30 years of practice.

It is also based on a clinical study published in 2012 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition¹:

A prospective, randomized trial conducted in the La Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital in Paris on a population of overweight or obese patients, and prediabetic patients compared an energy-restricted high-protein diet with a low glycemic index foods and a high soluble fiber content to a conventional low-calorie diet. The former was associated with improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors; a greater reduction of the size of the adipocytes (fat cells) and the markers of inflammation; and a significant reduction of the glycemia.

The Prediabaid program is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
