There’s still time to register for PreventT2

January 14, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Diabetes Prevention Program, PreventT2, starts next Monday, Jan. 21.

PreventT2 is part of the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program. If you have prediabetes, this evidence-based approach can help cut your risk for diabetes in half.

Throughout this year-long program, you will receive nutrition guidance, increase your physical activity and work toward moderate weight loss.

The group is led by a registered dietitian nutritionist and diabetes educator.

With the support of the dietitian and your peers, you will develop new, healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Through these lifestyle changes, not only might you reverse prediabetes, but you might also benefit from improved blood pressure, cholesterol, joint pain, energy levels and overall well-being.

You are eligible for the program if you meet both of these requirements:

  • Lab results showing A1C of 5.7-6.4% in the last year.
  • BMI of 25 or higher (23 or higher if Asian).

If you would like to learn more about this program, email um-mend-dpp@med.umich.edu or call 734-998-2475 and select option 1. A staff member will contact you for a phone orientation and enrollment information. Or click here for more information.

This program is a covered benefit for eligible members of BCN Premier Care.
