The National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) is a partnership of public and private organizations working to prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes.
Partners make it easier for people at risk for Type 2 diabetes to participate in evidence-based lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes.
You’ll get a full year of support and learn how to eat healthy, add physical activity to your routine, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of your goals.
This program is proven to prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes. Participants who lost 5-7% of their body weight and added 150 minutes of exercise per week cut their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by up to 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).
