Diabetes Prevention Program

Cover - National Diabetes Prevention Program Brochure

Type 2 diabetes threatens one in three Americans and 90 percent of these individuals don’t even know they’re at risk. Now a new program provides proven, community-based classes to help prevent the disease.

The Central New York Diabetes Education Program (CNY Diabetes) is offering a diabetes prevention program (CNY DPP) which focuses on treating prediabetes to prevent type 2 diabetes. At this early stage, blood sugar levels are elevated but not so high they can’t be lowered. Lifestyle changes are the key. By taking practical, everyday steps, you may reverse prediabetes and avoid type 2 diabetes, and associated dangers such as heart attack, stroke, blindness and amputation.

The Diabetes Risk Assessment Test is included in the NDPP Brochure PDF linked above.
