Diabetes Prevention Program

An estimated 86 million U.S. adults have prediabetes. 9 out 10 people do not know they have prediabetes. 15-30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Prediabetes is a condition in which a person’s blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes. The diabetes prevention program at barnabas health ambulatory care center is part of the Center for Disease Control national program to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. The program is a year-long program and certain requirements need to be met to be eligible to participate in the program.
