Get smart about risks and diabetes prevention.
Small changes lead to big results.
If you’ve been diagnosed with prediabetes, know that small changes to your lifestyle will lower your risk. Your doctor will help you create a plan and set goals that work for you. They may also refer you to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognized, evidence-based lifestyle change program. Don’t hesitate to ask for help along your journey.
Overweight? Know the impact.
If you’re overweight, it impacts more than your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It leads to unhealthy cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, high blood sugar and even stroke. The good news? Losing just 10-15 pounds can make a big difference.
