Why do I Prevent Type 2 Diabetes?
“I want my life to be healthy, full of time with friends and family and enjoy the things I love. Not worrying about type 2 diabetes. When my doctor told me I had prediabetes, I decided to take action.”
“I joined the Diabetes Prevention Program, a program proven to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The program’s lifestyle coach and the other participants were great. And the CDC-approved curriculum taught me how to lose weight, be more physically active, and reduce stress. My doctor said it’s making a difference. I plan to stay healthy for a long time. You can do it, too — with the Diabetes Prevention Program.”
There are 96 million American adults who have prediabetes – that’s 1 in 3 adults! Of those 96 million, more than 8 in 10 of them don’t even know they have it. Without taking action, many people with prediabetes could develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years.
Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) levels are higher than normal—but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes. Prediabetes can often be reversed.
The Diabetes Prevention Program is a lifestyle change program, created by the CDC and proven to help reduce your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. Find out if you are at risk – take the online test:
