HELPING PEOPLE PREVENT AND MANAGE DIABETES

Diabetes Prevention for Life Program

 

The Diabetes Prevention for Life Program was born out of my passion and mission to have a bigger impact on the global prediabetes epidemic. The numbers of those living with prediabetes are growing every year. The latest statistics reveal there are 88 million people, 1 out of 3, living with prediabetes and 90% are UNAWARE. Sadly, it is also affecting our adolescences and young adults. Without lifestyle changes, 1 in 3 will develop Type 2 Diabetes in their lifetime.

The good news is Diabetes is PREVENTABLE! Simple, lifestyle changes can lower the risks by more than half. The time to start the journey towards Diabetes Prevention for Life is now. 

The problem is 90% of those living with prediabetes are unaware. Could it be you? Take the prediabetes risk test. It takes less than 1-2 minutes to find out if you are likely to have prediabetes.  Are you ready… Click the link and found out. https://doihaveprediabetes.org/take-the-risk-test/#/  If you scored 5 or higher, you likely have prediabetes. Contact your healthcare provider to schedule an appointment to be tested.

Finding out you are at risk or already have prediabetes can be very scary. You may know someone living with Diabetes and have heard stories or seen what uncontrolled Diabetes can lead to. Yes, Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to potentially life threatening complications. However, you can start today to make small but significant changes towards preventing Diabetes for Life.
