Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Diabetes Prevention Program

If you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention’s National Diabetes Prevention Program can help you make small changes that yield big rewards.

Type 2 diabetes happens when your body can't use insulin the right way or when your pancreas can't make enough insulin. Risk factors for developing diabetes include a family history of diabetes, being over 45 years of age, being overweight or obese, having a history of gestational diabetes, and being physically active less than three times per week. Without intervention, 15 to 30 percent of individuals who are at risk will develop diabetes within five years.
The CDC’S National Diabetes Prevention Program is proven, possible and powerful!
