Diabetes Prevention Programs Avert, Delay Disease Onset

Diabetes prevention programs avert, delay disease onset Diabetes is a devastating disease. In addition to the long-lasting health effects, such as blindness and cardiovascular disease, the total economic cost of diabetes is a whopping $ 245 billion a year , accounting for one out of every 10 American healthcare dollars spent, according to a 2013 study in Diabetes Care. These costs, driven by the mushrooming prevalence of type 2 diabetes, prompted the CDC to expand the evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to reach a large population. The program targets the estimated 86 million Americansone in every three adultswith prediabetes, up to 30% of whom will develop diabetes within five years without intervention. Engaging people with prediabetes to modify their behavior is challenging, but the National DPP demonstrates that efficient, effective programs can change the lives of people at risk. What are National Diabetes Prevention Programs (National DPPs)? National DPPs are programs that are recognized by CDC. They implement the intensive lifestyle change program that features a trained coach leading a group of people with prediabetes who meet regularly in person, online, or via telehealth during a 12-month period. While the lifestyle coach facilitates the CDC-approved curriculum and provides resources to help people set goals and overcome barriers, the vital ingredient is the camaraderie the meetings foster in a support-group environment. Participants who attend the program reduce their risk of development, or delay type 2 diabetes significantly. In 2012, six organizations were chosen to work in a cooperative agreement with the CDC to expand the National DPP using various models, with a goal of sustainability. The NIH randomized DPP studies found people w Continue reading >>

National Dpp Research And Return On Investment - American College Of Preventive Medicine

National DPP Research and Return on Investment About the Program Research / ROI Patient Materials Referral Strategies Provider Reimbursement Events / Webinars CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs are proven to work and are based on research led by the National Institutes of Health. This research showed that people with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent (71 percentfor people over 60 years old). This finding was the result of the program helping people lose 5 to 7 percentof their body weight through healthier eating and 150 minutes of physical activity a week. For a person who weighs 200 pounds, losing 5 to 7 percentof their body weight means losing just 10 to 14 pounds. It doesnt take a drastic weight loss to make a big impact. And the impact of this program can last for years to come. Research has found that even after 10 years, people who completed a diabetes prevention lifestyle change program were one third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. (Source: CDC-DPP ) The Diabetes Prevention Impact toolkit predicts the health and economic effects of the National DPP lifestyle change program on a state, employer, or insurers population at risk for type 2 diabetes. Specifically, the toolkit allows users to estimate program costs, diabetes-related medical costs, and return on investment (ROI) along with other cost and health outcome measures. In the Employer and Insurer modules, users have the option to customize their results by entering employee/beneficiary-specific data. This toolkit was developed to provide information for payers interested in covering the National DPP lifestyle change program. Continue reading >>

To receive email updates about this page, enter your email address: Employers and insurers can help make lifestyle change programslike yoursavailable at no or low cost to participants by offering them as a covered health benefit. Consider reaching out to employers and insurers in your area to encourage them to add a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program to their benefits packages. This practice worked for a lifestyle change program provider in Kingsport, Tennessee, which expanded its existing partnership with a local employer to include coverage of the diabetes prevention program. The employer has also supported on-site screenings and promotional events for employees and their spouses. Also consider asking employers to offer your lifestyle change program at their worksite. The department of water and power of a major metro city did so, and has even offered electronic fitness trackers as a reward for employees who complete the year-long program. A program offered in a grocery store pharmacy had success recruiting participants through collaboration with the state employee health plan, which covered the lifestyle change program.

Just how much can diabetes prevention programs save? To help employers, insurers, and state health departments weigh the costs and benefits of National DPP lifestyle change programs, CDC has developed the Diabetes Prevention Impact Toolkit. This online tool provides estimates of: Total cost of delivering a National DPP or similar lifestyle change program to a covered population Total health benefit resulting from the program Life years gained and quality-adjusted life years saved Cost-effectiveness of the lifestyle change program Users can get results based on default values for their target population or enter customized values that reflect their own population and program experience. Users can also customize the toolkits results to show the most relevant data for their needs. Explore the Diabetes Prevention Impact Toolkit or to learn more about the Impact Toolkit and how to use it, take a look at the help andresources . Use the AMA DPP Cost Saving Calculator to calculate your potential medical cost savings from providing the National DPP as a covered benefit. By enabling individuals within your population who are at risk for type 2 diabetes to participate in a local or virtual CDC-recognized lifestyle change program, you can help them prevent type 2 diabetes and reduce your organizations health care spending. Enter information unique to your population into this calculator to see potential cost savings for your population. Different cost calculator tools can yield different conclusions because of the data and assumptions underlying their calculations*. Two of the primary factors leading to differences in conclusions generated by these two tools are the estimates of 1) progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes; and 2) the reduction in risk provided by lifestyle Continue reading >>

Diabetes remains one of Mississippis fastest-growing and most costly diseases. Mississippi has the third highest rate of diabetes at 13.6% in the country. According to the CDC, 30.3 million Americans have diabetes and another 84 million have prediabetes. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, costing $245 billion in medical expenses and lost productivity annually. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1 out of 3 U.S. adultsor nearly 84 millionhave prediabetes, and of those, 90 percent dont know they have it. Fortunately, prediabetes can be reversed, and the sooner patients find out they have prediabetes, the better their chances of preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recognized evidence-based lifestyle change program for persons with prediabetes that has been demonstrated to prevent or delay the development of diabetes. The Mississippi State Medical Association (MSMA) has partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA), with guidance and support from the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), to raise awareness of prediabetes resources, help providers connect their patients to CDC-recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs, and allow patients to take charge of their health. AMA and the CDC have created Prevent Diabetes STAT (Screen / Test / Act Today) , a toolkit to help health care providers identify, engage and test patients at risk for prediabetes and refer patients with prediabetes to CDC Recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs. CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs connect patients who are at risk for Type 2 diabetes with trained lifestyle coaches and g Continue reading >>

Curbing The Diabetes Epidemic

Curbing The Diabetes Epidemic

Home InterBusiness Issues February 2018 The growing prevalence of individuals diagnosed with diabetes in the U.S. is reaching epidemic proportions. A 2017 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that 30.3 million Americans now have the condition and an additional 84.1 million have prediabeteswhich may develop into diabetes within five years if left untreated. Meanwhile, the financial burden is growing even more quickly. Medical expenses for those with diabetes tend to be twice as high as for those without. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports the economic costs of the condition reached $322 billion in 2017up from $245 million four years earlier. This reflects direct medical expenses (e.g., hospital and emergency care, office visits, medications) as well as indirect costs (e.g., absenteeism, reduced productivity, unemployment caused by diabetes-related disability). The rising cost of insulin is also a concern: the average price nearly tripled between 2002 and 2013. And employees with diabetes miss 57 million additional days of work each year, according to Gallup and ShareCare Diabetes Solutions, costing employers $20.4 billion annually. If the trend is not curbed, researchers worry that as many as one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050. To make matters worse, many individuals with type-2 diabetes or prediabetes are unaware they even have the condition. Public health officials and the medical community are working to combat the impact and prevalence of type 2 diabetes by promoting access to prevention education and healthier lifestyles, with a focus on nutrition and physical activity. The CDC and ADA encourage screening and testing for patients with prediabetes to prevent more serious health problems; diabetes self-manag Continue reading >>

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease (NIDDK) Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) research study showed that a small amount of weight loss, achieved through lifestyle changes, could prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes in diverse populations including American Indian people. Even more striking, a lifestyle intervention was more effective than medication in preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes. The DPP program has already been successfully applied in American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities through the Special Diabetes Program for Indian (SDPI) Diabetes Prevention (DP) grant program. As in the NIDDK DPP, many SDPI participants lost weight and reduced their diabetes risk by increasing their level of physical activity and eating healthier foods. It is the hope that other AI/AN communities will implement their own innovative diabetes prevention strategies based on the NIDDK DPP to reduce diabetes risk and create healthier futures for people in their community. The modules in this toolkit will provide keys to success and lessons learned from 38 SDPI DP grant programs as they used the NIDDK DPP to meet the needs of their communities while incorporating their traditions and cultures. It takes time to build a program that engages the community and establishes community ownership. Input from stakeholders, such as Tribal and community leaders, local clinic staff, and participants can help to improve the success of your program. When you're ready, develop a plan. Determine the mission of your DPP program and use it to help guide decisions about priorities, actions, and responsibilities. Learn about the culture of the Tribe(s) you serve and find ways to incorporate cultural elements and values into your program. Assess the effect Continue reading >>
