For Health Care Providers

Control diabetes before it controls you.

Learn more about Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes below.
Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed a diabetes. Prediabetes raises your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Without weight loss and/or physical activity, many people with the condition will go on to develop type 2 diabetes within 3 years. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to:
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Blindness
  • Kidney Failure
  • Loss of Toes, Feet, or Legs
  • The lifestyle changes made through the Diabetes Prevention Program will help you prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes.
Factors that may put you at higher risk for developing prediabetes or type 2 diabetes include:
  • 45 years of age or older
  • Overweight (Not sure if you’re overweight? Calculate your BMI here. A score over 25 indicates that you are overweight.)
  • Have a family history of type 2 diabetes
  • Are physically active fewer than 3 times per week
  • Ever had diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes) or gave birth to a baby the weighed more than 9 pounds.
  • More than 37 million people in the United States have diabetes, and 1 in 5 of them don’t know they have it.
  • Medical costs for people with diabetes are twice as high as for people who don’t have diabetes.
  • Participating in a Diabetes Prevention Lifestyle Change Program can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by half.
