Free Diabetes Prevention Program, January 22 and 30

One out of three American adults, and one out of four young adults (ages 19-35) have prediabetes, and 90% of them don’t know it. Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people with prediabetes can develop type 2 diabetes within five years. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to health issues such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, or kidney failure.

Take this quick, self-assessment quiz from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to find out if you have prediabetes!

St. Peter’s Health Partners offers a FREE, 16-week  lifestyle change program that will help you make lasting changes to prevent type 2 diabetes. The program offers —

  • A CDC-approved curriculum
  • The skills you need to lose weight, be more physically active, and manage stress
  • A trained lifestyle coach to guide and encourage you
  • Support from other participants with the same goals as you
  • Follow-meetings to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle

To be eligible for this free program you must score a 9 or greater on the CDC Self-Assessment Quiz or be diagnosed with prediabetes by your physician.
