Diabetes Prevention

It’s important to take steps to reduce your risk and prevent diabetes. This is because diabetes can lead to serious health problems. You have a greater risk of getting diabetes if you:

  • Are overweight or obese
  • Don’t get enough exercise
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Have abnormal cholesterol
  • Have a parent, brother, or sister with diabetes

The good news is there’s a lot you can do to help prevent diabetes—and we can help. Get started today by joining a Nationally Recognized Diabetes Prevention Program near you.
