FAQ Questions Frequently Asked About the Program

What is Prediabetes?

Prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Risk for developing type 2 diabetes may be reduced or eliminated by weight loss, healthier eating and increased physical activity. More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes.

Please note that this is not a diabetes management program.
This program is aimed at those who are prediabetic.
