“Before joining the Diabetes Prevention Program, I was unsure of where to turn for help and support in losing weight and learning how to live a healthier lifestyle. I didn’t have the tools necessary to make the changes I needed to make on my own. I was introduced to the program through my employer and though excited about the opportunity to learn a new way of life, I didn’t have much confidence in myself that I would be successful. After spending a year in the program, I not only learned the tools necessary to be successful at a lifestyle change, I also gained confidence in myself. The Diabetes Prevention Program, through coaching and group support, helped me learn how to eat healthier and increase my physical activity. I am now confident in my ability to reach my weight loss and fitness goals and will use the tools I learned to live a healthier lifestyle.”
-Tamara, DPP Participant
This program has two goals:
- Reduce body weight by 5-7%
- Increase physical activity to 150 minutes a week
The Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidence-based program designed to help people with a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The yearlong program uses behavior modification techniques to help you adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating healthier foods, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight. Together these positive changes help reduce your chances of developing the disease. Based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, programs like the Diabetes Prevention Program may reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes by 58 percent.
The goal of the Diabetes Prevention program is to help reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Depending on employer and health insurance plan, there may be coverage options for you, please contact us to see what you may be eligible for.
