Diabetes Prevention Program

Sanford Center for Aging

What is prediabetes?

Your blood sugar (glucose) level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Nearly 90 percent of adults who have prediabetes don't know they have it. Those who have prediabetes combined with poor weight management and/or minimal physical activity could develop type 2 diabetes within five years.

How will this program help you?

Learn the skills you need to lose weight, be more physically active, and manage stress, connect with a lifestyle coach to guide and encourage you, and gain support from other members who have similar goals.
