For Healthcare Providers
Prevent Diabetes STAT
Healthcare providers can help patients lower their chances of getting diabetes by following the guidelines in the toolkit, Prevent Diabetes STAT: Screen, Test, Act Today.
Screen: Take the quiz to find out if you are at risk.
Test: If you are at risk, ask your doctor for a diabetes test.
Act Today: If you have or are at risk for prediabetes, lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, increased physical activity, and losing just 5-7% of body weight, can help you prevent diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is an evidence-based program that can help you make lifestyle changes and prevent diabetes. Recognized DPPs are listed on the CDC registry.
