Reducing the risk. How does diabetes affect lives?

Together we can save lives by preventing the onset of one common disease that can lead to many life-threatening complications. 88 million American adults have prediabetes and most don’t even know it. Prediabetes is associated with elevated glucose level but has not developed into type 2 diabetes yet. It’s a chance to stop diabetes in its tracks. Diabetes can lead to more serious conditions that can cost people their lives. We can be a part of the solution by providing access to highly trained lifestyle coaches that have been proven to make a difference in people’s lives and prevent type 2 diabetes.

Together we can prevent T2

Lifestyle change programs promote healthy living, making small, easy changes to your lifestyle that can make a big impact. Studies show that diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs can cut a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half, reducing the onset of more serious conditions caused by type 2 diabetes. Our CDC-backed lifestyle change programs have even been proven to be more effective than even certain medications in preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes and with long lasting results! It has been shown that even three years later, most of the participants had still not developed type 2 diabetes. Small changes can lead to big results.
