National Diabetes Prevention Program
Prediabetes is a health condition in which individuals have higher than normal blood glucose (sugar) levels, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetic. People with prediabetes are at a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. An estimated 86 million Americans, or 1 in 3 adults, has prediabetes. Of those 86 million, 9 out of 10 of them don’t even know they have it! The good news is, if you have prediabetes – you can cut your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in half!
The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) is an evidence-based and cost-effective program that helps prevent Type 2 diabetes, and is endorsed by the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is a year-long program that is designed and proven to help people lose weight and make lasting lifestyle changes through developing healthful eating habits, increasing physical activity levels, and reducing stress.
