Prevent Diabetes San Diego

What if you could prevent or delay the onset of diabetes?

More than 96 million American adults have prediabetes and 80% of them don’t know they have it. Prediabetes increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The good news is that the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) can help people with prediabetes make lifestyle changes to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems.

Whether you are a healthcare provider looking for lifestyle change resources for your clients, a community member looking for help, an employer interested in offering effective wellness resources to your employees, or an organization interested in building a program, this website is designed to provide the information and resources to help you.
