One in three adults lives with prediabetes. If you have prediabetes, you are 5-15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program showed that type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with a healthy lifestyle. If you are at high risk, or already have prediabetes, you qualify for this year-long program which includes 16-weekly sessions followed by 6-8 monthly sessions.
To participate in the NDPP, a person must be overweight and have pre-diabetes, or be at high risk.
High risk is defined as having a combination of risk factors such as:
- being overweight or obese (BMI >24, or >22 if Asian)
- family history of diabetes
- gestational diabetes
Prediabetes is determined by one of the following blood test results:
- Fasting plasma glucose between 100 and 125 mg/dL
- A1c between 5.7% and 6.4%
- 2-hour plasma glucose between 140 to 199 mg/dL
Take the Diabetes Risk Test.
