Imagine if there was a way you could better your chances of preventing type 2 diabetes; well there is and it all starts with a doctors visit to see if you have a condition called pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes is when a person’s blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as diabetes.



86 million people have prediabetes and don   t know it. Do you have it?

As with any preventative measure, the sooner you find out if you have pre-diabetes the better your chances at prevention. Having this condition puts you at risk for serious health problems including type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.

You can contact your local YMCA to find out more about Diabetes Prevention Program support groups that may be in your area. Additionally, there is a CDC led National Diabetes Prevention Program that assists with preventing type 2 diabetes among people at high risk. Over 625 organizations offer the program nationally.

National Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based lifestyle change program for preventing type 2 diabetes. The year-long program helps participants make real lifestyle changes such as eating healthier, including physical activity in their daily lives, and improving problem-solving and coping skills. Participants meet with a trained lifestyle coach and a small group of people who are making lifestyle changes to prevent diabetes. Sessions are weekly for 6 months and then monthly for six months.

More organizations are coming on board every day to meet the growing demand for effective programs to help adults prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program encourages collaboration among federal agencies, community-based organizations, employers, insurers, health care professionals, academia, and other stakeholders to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes among people with pre-diabetes in the United States.
