The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a year-long, evidence-based lifestyle change program for prediabetic adults. Prediabetes is a medical condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to warrant a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. An estimated 86 million adults in the U.S. have prediabetes. That is 1 in 3 people! DPP combines group support with achievable goal setting to help participants make healthy, life-long changes that reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Take the quiz to find out if you are at risk for developing prediabetes.
