Details:

Sauk Prairie Healthcare’s diabetes prevention program offers participants lifestyle coaches to help you learn new skills, encourage you to set and meet goals, and keep you motivated. The coaches will also facilitate in person and online discussions and help make the program fun and engaging.

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.

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

  • Overweight
  • 45 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)

Who is eligible? To participate, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old, or be accompanied by a parent or guardian
  • Have no previous diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes
  • Have at least one established risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes (see above) or have been diagnosed with prediabetes within the past year or previously diagnosed with gestational diabetes
