What is prediabetes?
People with prediabetes have blood sugar levels higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diabetes. Lifestyle changes resulting in moderate weight loss can help people prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. Without weight loss and moderte physical activity, 15-30 people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years!
If you are not diagnosed with prediabetes you may still participate in the program!
