DIABETES PREVENTION Lifestyle Change Program

The PreventT2 lifestyle change program is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program. It is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) proven program that has been shown to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in high-risk patients.

Prediabetes

Are you at risk?

Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not  yet diabetes. Diabetes is a serious disease, which can cause heart attack, stroke,  blindness, kidney failure, or loss of toes, feet or legs. 

Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or  prevented in people with prediabetes, through effective lifestyle programs.  Take the first step. Find out your risk  for prediabetes. 

If you have these risk factors, you may be  at higher risk than others for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes: 

  • Overweight
  • 45 years of age or older 
  • Have a parent or sibling with  type 2 diabetes 
  • Physically active fewer than  3 times per week 
  • Had diabetes while pregnant  (gestational diabetes)

  • Be at least 18 years old 
  • Be overweight (BMI ≥ 24; ≥ 22 if Asian) 
  • Have no previous diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes
