Diabetes PreventT2 Program

Are you concerned about your blood sugar?

Did you know that having prediabetes means your blood sugar level is higher than normal, increasing your risk of getting Type 2 diabetes? Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people with prediabetes can develop Type 2 diabetes within 5 years.

Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to health issues such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure or loss of toes, feet or legs. People with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%. For people over 60 years old, it is reduced by 71%.

Take the diabetes risk test to see if you are at risk of developing diabetes.


Prevent T2 Program Information

PreventT2 is a small-group coaching program that uses a research-based CDC approved curriculum that has been proven to be an effective lifestyle change program to help delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. 

A trained lifestyle coach leads the program. You will work closely with this coach to learn skills needed to make lasting changes. You will learn how to lose weight in a healthy way, increase physical activity, manage stress and more. You will also be joining a group of people who are facing similar challenges and together, overcome obstacles and celebrate successes.

PreventT2 includes 16 weekly sessions followed by 6 monthly check-ins. Investing in this program can bring positive changes to your health by creating new habits, gaining new skills and building confidence.

“Thank you for all you have done. I have been doing 5,300 step walks for exercise and for the first time in many years the results of my last two blood tests (6-month period) shows that everything has been within the normal range. I have learned a healthier way of life through you and I am so so so grateful. Much gratitude and appreciation.”
