National Diabetes Prevention Program

About 1 in 3 people have prediabetes, meaning your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as diabetes. Having prediabetes is serious. It puts you at higher risk for type 2 diabetes as well as heart disease and stroke. The good news is prediabetes and type 2 diabetes can be prevented!

Joining a CDC-recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program or National DPP can help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that a CDC-recognized program can cut your risk of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent and up to 71 percent for people aged 60 and older.
