Prevent type 2 diabetes with the Diabetes Prevention Program Find education and support across Minnesota for people who have prediabetes or are at high risk for type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-led, proven lifestyle change program that can help people with prediabetes cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half. A trained lifestyle coach works with participants to teach lifestyle skills needed to make lasting changes — like eating healthier, adding physical activity and managing stress. The goal of this year-long program is for participants to lose 5 to 7 percent of their body weight and gain 150 minutes of weekly physical activity. Program participants meet weekly for 16 weeks over an initial six-month period, and monthly over the next six months. The DPP curriculum is based on findings from the Diabetes Prevention Program research study, a randomized controlled trial conducted by the National Institutes of Health. This study showed that people with prediabetes who lost a modest amount of weight — 5 to 7 percent, or about 15 to 20 pounds for most people — reduced their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent over a three year period.

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.
