Turning back the clock on prediabetes

You don’t have to change your whole life. Find out which changes matter most and how to make them stick.

Imagine how it would feel to take charge of your life and lower your risk for type 2 diabetes.

Imagine having more energy to do the things you love with the people you love. These real-life participants got the chance to reverse their prediabetes and improve their health when they joined CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program. In the program, they learned skills to build healthy habits with the support of a trained Lifestyle Coach and other participants who shared the same goals.

You can too! Your journey to better health and type 2 diabetes prevention starts here.
