According to the CDC, 1 in 3 adults have prediabetes, and 90% of them don’t know they have it. Many people are at higher risk for type 2 diabetes because they:
- Are overweight
- Are age 45 or older
- Have a family member with type 2 diabetes
- Are physically active less than 3 times a week
- Had gestational diabetes
- Are African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian, Alaska Native, Pacific Islander or Asian American
For those that have been diagnosed, dealing with prediabetes can be overwhelming. That’s where incentaHEALTH’s home-based #PreventDiabetes program comes in. With work, family, and school obligations consuming much of the week, it’s hard to make the time for one more thing. #PreventDiabetes solves this challenge by delivering a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program that works around a busy adult’s schedule.
