The lifestyle changes you make in the National Diabetes Prevention Program will help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
If you have prediabetes or other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, now is the time to take charge of your health and make a change. The Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle change program can help!
The National Diabetes Prevention Program led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) features an approach that is proven to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
By improving food choices and increasing physical activity, you can lose 5 to 7 percent of your body weight — that is 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds. If you have prediabetes, these lifestyle changes can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
One out of three American adults has prediabetes, and most of them do not know it. Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. This raises your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people with prediabetes can develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to health issues such as heart attack; stroke; blindness; kidney failure; or loss of toes, feet, or legs.
The lifestyle changes you make in the Diabetes Prevention Program will help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
As part of a DPP group, you will work with a trained lifestyle coach and other participants to learn the skills you need to make lasting changes. You will learn to eat healthy, add physical activity to your life, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy changes.
Diabetes Prevention Program is a year-long program with weekly meetings for the first 6 months, then meetings once or twice a month for the second 6 months to help you maintain your healthy lifestyle changes. By meeting with others who have prediabetes you can celebrate each other’s successes and work together to overcome obstacles.
