This presentation has been designed to give an overview of the Diabetes Prevention Program, the benefits behind it, and the great success participants who have completed the program have had with improving their overall health and reducing the risk of transitioning into Type 2 Diabetes. Prediabetes is a growing health condition throughout the world: An estimated 84 million Americans have prediabetes, making them at higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The CDC estimates that 1 in 3 adults have prediabetes; 90% are unaware that they have the condition. Diabetes currently affects 1 in 10 adults, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates as many as 1 in 5 adults could have type 2 diabetes by 2025, if nothing changes. Without intervention, up to 30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
