The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program offers a proven program to help you reverse prediabetes.
There are 22 one-hour sessions during the yearlong program. You’ll work with a lifestyle coach and a small group of people who are all working to reverse prediabetes. You’ll learn how to eat better, be more active, and find ways to deal with problems and stress. These healthy habits can help change your life. And if you can’t join the meetings in person, you can join an online program.
This is a great program to help people with prediabetes change their life. People can lower their risk of getting type 2 diabetes by more than half.
Many places across the U.S. have this program and just like you want positive results, so find one near you.

Can I join the National Diabetes Prevention Program lifestyle change program?
Your doctor can tell you if you can. It’s based on your body mass index (which is based on your height and weight), your blood sugar levels (shown by a blood test), your age (you must be 18 or older), and whether you have a history of gestational diabetes (you got diabetes when you were pregnant). You may also join based on results from the online risk test.
Do I have to pay for the National Diabetes Prevention Program?
Your insurance or employer may help pay for the program. For some people, there may be a cost. Check with your insurance or employer to see if they can cover the cost.
