79 million Americans are estimated to have prediabetes, which means they have a high risk of developing diabetes.
Preventing diabetes doesn’t require major lifestyle changes. Once you understand the risk factors, get yourself tested, and begin to eat healthier and get active, you can be well on your way.
Are You at Risk?
Adults can take a simple risk test at https://www.diabetes.org/risk-test.
If you think you or someone you know may be at risk for type 2 diabetes, then join the lifestyle change program to prevent type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program – Prevent T2 series – can help you lower your risk for type 2 diabetes with gradual, modest lifestyle changes.
Prevent T2 includes year-long support and motivation beginning with 12 weekly class meetings, bi-weekly for the next four sessions and then monthly meetings for the last six sessions.
