In the continuum of glycaemia between type 2 diabetes and normal glucose control, there exists a condition known as non-diabetic hyperglycaemia (NDH). individuals with NDH may benefit from timely lifestyle, medical or surgical intervention, and the efficacy of each approach is discussed in this article. Targeting type 2 diabetes prevention through national policies that reduce overall consumption of food and increase levels of physical activity is likely to be the most viable and cost-effective method. That said, solely relying on an individual's adherence to diet and physical activity recommendations may not be enough to delay progression for a large proportion of people at risk. Thus, attention must also be given to recommendations for pharmacological therapy or surgery in order to yield long-term societal benefits. The introduction of the National Diabetes Prevention Programme heralds an exciting time for diabetes prevention and, although real-world translation remains a huge hurdle, it also represents the best opportunity to stem the tide of the diabetes epidemic in England.
