Diabetes Prevention program

We can help you make a change!

Prediabetes is defined as having an elevated blood sugar level but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

29 million people have diabetes and 86 million more have prediabetes. 9 out 10 people with prediabetes don’t know they have it. Without making any changes in body weight or physical activity, 15-30% of these people will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
