Update On The National Diabetes Prevention Program

Update On The National Diabetes Prevention Program

Today's Dietitian Vol. 18 No. 4 P. 24 Learn what the National DPP is all about and how dietitians can get involved. A massive, multifaceted problem often requires a solution of the same proportions. Diabetes is a health crisis dietitians know well, and the numbers of those who have the disease or may develop it are staggering. But through the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with hundreds of organizations, stakeholders, and trained professionals are working to reach and then help millions of Americans delay and possibly prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. The CDC estimates that 29.1 million Americans have diabetes, and 8 million of them don't even know it. What's worse, prediabetes affects even more people—an estimated 86 million people aged 20 and older. The vast majority, about 90% of people with elevated blood glucose that isn't high enough to be considered diabetes, have yet to be diagnosed. That's crucial, because prediabetes not only puts people at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, it also puts them at higher risk of heart disease and stroke, according to the 2014 National Diabetes Statistics Report. But if the CDC and a whole host of other organizations across the country have anything to say about it, type 2 diabetes won't be a reality for the many millions of Americans they seek to reach through the National DPP. What Is the National DPP? Established five years ago, the National DPP is the largest effort of its kind to prevent type 2 diabetes. Managed by the CDC, the National DPP is a framework built on the National Institutes of Health's landmark DPP study that concluded in 2002, which showed lifestyle modifications, including healthful eating, moderate weight loss, an Continue reading >>

About The National Diabetes Prevention Program

About The National Diabetes Prevention Program

ont The CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program is a public-private partnership of community organizations, private insurers, employers, health care organizations, and government agencies. These partners are working together to establish local evidence-based lifestyle change programs for people at high risk for type 2 diabetes. These evidence-based lifestyle change programs are based on the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) research study, which showed that type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed through modest lifestyle changes involving healthy eating and physical activity. The lifestyle change program is led by a trained facilitator called a Lifestyle Coach. In the lifestyle change program, participants meet in a group with their Lifestyle Coach over the course of one year to work towards the goal of losing 5 to 7 percent of their starting body weight in order to reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes. The program emphasizes improving food choices, being physically active for at least 150 minutes each week, and developing skills to identify and overcome barriers to making lifestyle changes. Learn more about the National DPP on CDC’s website: The Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) CDC's Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) assures that evidence-based lifestyle change programs are delivered at sites around the country in a high quality way.

National Dpp Questions

National Dpp Questions

Q: Can children under 18 years old attend the National DPP class? The National DPP prediabetes classes are intended for adults 18 years and older. If your child attends with you, its not recommended that they get weighed in or provide any personal information to the lifestyle coach. Data for youth are not sent on to the CDC DPRP. Q: If I have a participant drop out before the first 4 sessions are done, are we able to bring in a new participant at that point as long as they still meet the minimum meeting requirement? Any participant who attended their first session in the effective year, is eligible, attended four or more sessions; and in this case, adheres to the weekly session requirement in the first 16 weeks, will be included for analysis. If you have additional questions or comments, please email [email protected] . Q: When should I conduct a make-up session for a participant who has missed class? CDC strongly recommends that delivery organizations schedule make-up sessions on different days than class days so that participants only attend one session per day. Only one session per day per participant will be evaluated by CDC for recognition purposes, so if there are multiple sessions in one day, they wont all be reflected in your organizations evaluation. For the convenience of the lifestyle coach and participants, make-up sessions can be held over the phone. In this situation, weight and physical activity minutes can be self-reported. If you have additional questions or comments, please email [email protected] . Q: If a participant is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes during my yearlong class, do I submit their data to the DPRP? If your organization has a participant who is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes during the yearlong class, they will need to drop out and seek diab Continue reading >>
