Prevent diabetes with proven lifestyle-change program

September 9, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

If you have prediabetes, getting type 2 diabetes isn’t inevitable. In fact, prediabetes can often be reversed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of U.S. adults have prediabetes. However, it is estimated that 58 percent of new type 2 cases could have been prevented through proactive lifestyle changes.

That’s why the CDC recognizes the Diabetes Prevention Program, or DPP, as a first step to making changes in your life to prevent the disease, improve your health and feel more energized. Plus, U-M Premier Care members may be able to participate in the DPP program free of charge.

If you want to learn more, the diabetes experts at the Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND) clinic invite you to an informational meeting about their upcoming fall classes. Informational sessions begin next week. Click here to register for fall program information sessions.

  • Sept. 12, 6-7 p.m. at Domino’s Farms
  • Sept. 13, 6-7 p.m. at Wolverine Tower
  • Sept. 19, 6-7 p.m. at Canton Health Tower
