Diabetes Prevention Program:
Prediabetes greatly increases the chance of developing type 2 diabetes and other serious health conditions. To help patients, NorthLakes has launched a Diabetes Prevention Program.
The program is designed to prevent diabetes in those who have been diagnosed with prediabetes, have a history of gestational diabetes, had a high-risk score using the ADA/CDC prediabetes risk test, and/or those at high risk for developing diabetes. Participants must have a BMI over 25 to participate. Goals include engaging in at least 150 minutes of physical activity each week and a 5-7% reduction in participants’ body weight over one year. This service does qualify for the Sliding Fee Scale. For more information about the class, including eligibility requirements and how to enroll, watch our Q&A video with our Dietitian and one of our Lifestyle Coaches, Rebecca Crumb-Johnson, and/or review the flyer here.
It’s important to be screened regularly for prediabetes and take the steps necessary to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. You can also see if you are at risk by taking this prediabetes risk test and talking to your provider about the results.
