Diabetes Prevention Program

Prediabetes is when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. One in three American adults has prediabetes, but 90 percent do not know they have it. Research has shown that for people with prediabetes, a structured lifestyle change program can cut the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
