Preventing Type 2 Diabetes 

If you have prediabetes, getting type 2 diabetes doesn’t have to be a sure thing. In fact, prediabetes can often be reversed.

If you have prediabetes, getting type 2 diabetes doesn’t have to be a sure thing. In fact, prediabetes can often be reversed.

Join a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change program to help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.

The program can also lower your risk of having a heart attack or stroke, improve your health overall, and help you feel more energetic.

CDC-Recognized Diabetes Prevention Lifestyle Change Programs: An Overviewcollapse

“I like the program because of the group participation; emphasis on making small steps to build people’s confidence; and nonjudgmental, supportive environment.” -Cynthia Oredugba, Lifestyle Coach

CDC-recognized lifestyle change program is a structured program—in person or online—developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes. It is designed for people who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, but who do not already have diabetes.

A trained lifestyle coach leads the program to help you change certain aspects of your lifestyle, like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. The program also includes group support from others who share your goals and struggles.

This lifestyle change program is not a fad diet or an exercise class. And it’s not a quick fix. It’s a year-long program focused on long-term changes and lasting results.

A year might sound like a long commitment, but learning new habits, gaining new skills, and building confidence takes time. As you begin to eat better and become more active, you’ll notice changes in how you feel, and maybe even in how you look.

To learn more about what it’s like to be in a lifestyle change program, visit The Lifestyle Change Program Details. Or watch “A Change for Life” video describing the program.

Please note* If you have already been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and want to learn how to manage it, please visit CDC’s Managing Diabetes webpage.
