Program
CDC Recognized Lifestyle Change Program
Mission

The National Diabetes Prevention Program—or National DPP—was created in 2010 to address the increasing burden of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in the United States. This national effort created partnerships between public and private organizations to offer evidence-based, cost-effective interventions that help prevent type 2 diabetes in communities across the United States.

One key feature of the National DPP is the CDC-recognized lifestyle change program, a research-based program focusing on healthy eating and physical activity which 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% (71% for people over 60 years old).

Demographic
People with prediabetes or at risk for type 2 diabetes
Goal
To prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Hundreds of lifestyle change programs nationwide teach participants to make lasting lifestyle changes, like eating healthier, adding physical activity into their daily routine, and improving coping skills.
Impact
The National DPP works to make it easier for people with prediabetes to participate in affordable, high-quality lifestyle change programs to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes and improve their overall health. Through the National DPP, partner organizations: - Deliver CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs nationwide - Ensure quality and adherence to proven standards - Train community organizations that can run the lifestyle change program effectively - Increase referrals to and participation in CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs - Increase coverage by employers and public and private insurers

Program
CDC Recognized Lifestyle Change Program
Mission

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight to reduce their chances of developing the disease.

In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will facilitate a small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over 12 months, beginning with 16 weekly one-hour sessions, three sessions delivered every other week and then eight monthly Sessions for added support to help them maintain their progress.  The two goals of the program are 7% weight loss and 150 minutes of physical activity a week.

Demographic
Participants who qualify for the program must be at least 18 years old, overweight (BMI > 25) and at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes indicated by a confirmatory blood value, a clinical diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes (GDM) during a previous pregnancy, or a qualifying risk score.
Goal
To prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Hundreds of lifestyle change programs nationwide teach participants to make lasting lifestyle changes, like eating healthier, adding physical activity into their daily routine, and improving coping skills.
Impact
Participants will receive a notebook which contains worksheets and handouts for them to use in each of the sessions of the lifestyle intervention. Participants will also receive a weekly journal and be asked to track their food and physical activity during the program. Starting on Week 5 of the program participants will receive a free three-month membership to the Gateway Region YMCA.

Prediabetes Screeing (Online)


Program
Prediabetes Screenings
Mission

Prediabetes means a person’s blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, but not high enough yet for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. If left untreated, prediabetes can progress into type 2 diabetes.

And if 1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes, that means it could be you, your favorite sibling, or your other sibling. Or you, your barber, your barber’s barber. Or you—well, you get the picture. It’s time to take the risk test to know where you stand.

Goal
With early diagnosis, prediabetes can often be reversed. By joining the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), you’ll learn how to make small changes, like altering your diet and exercising more, which can help reverse prediabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes.
