Prevent Diabetes STAT

Health care 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.
