Diabetes Prevention Program

 
Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is proven by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent Type 2 Diabetes! It’s a lifestyle change program for people with prediabetes.

  • It can help you lose 5-7% of your body weight.  So if you weigh 200 pounds, this would mean losing 10-14 pounds.
  • It supports you in increasing your physical activity routine to 150 minutes per week.
  • Classes are offered in a group setting in the community, at clinics, and online. 
  • You will learn new skills like:
            - Ways to stay motivated        - Being active as a way of life
            - Stress management              - Carb & calorie counting

  • A Lifestyle Coach will support you for 1 year in DPP!
  • The cost can range from $429 or more for the 1-year program.
  • Most health insurance plans cover the cost of the program and Medicare (in 2018) and Medi-Cal (in 2019) will start covering it soon!
