National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)
Lose weight, Build New Habits
The Diabetes prevention program (DPP) is a year-long lifestyle change program designed for those at risk for type 2 diabetes. If you lose 5-10% of their body weight, through diet and lifestyle changes you can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
The CDC’s DPP program is based on clinical research, indicating that participants who completed the CDC’s DPP program had a 58% risk reduction for developing type 2 diabetes.
