Encore Presentation, The National Diabetes Prevention Program — Changing Lifestyles to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Originally presented on . Encore presentation on .

Diabetes is a serious public health problem. About 34 million Americans have diabetes, and more than 88 million American adults have prediabetes. People with prediabetes have blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. They are at risk for type 2 diabetes, heart attack and stroke, but lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and increasing physical activity, can reduce their risk and may even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Learn how participating in the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle change program can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in those at high risk.
