One out of three American adults has prediabetes, and most of them do not know it. Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. This raises your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people with prediabetes can develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years. The year-long PreventT2 lifestyle change program, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, can help you make lasting changes to prevent type 2 diabetes.

Year-long program: classes meet once a week for 16 weeks, followed by every other week for 2.5 months, and then monthly meetings for the remaining 5 months; $100 total cost ($50 material fee and $50 incentive fee).

I was able to see my doctor right away! I didn't have to wait 3 months or 6 months. It makes me feel good to get my issues taken care of quickly and move on so I can enjoy my life.
