Want to lower your risk of type 2 diabetes? Take action today!

Find a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program, a structured program—in person or online— that has been developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes near you!

A diabetes care and education specialist (DCES) or trained lifestyle coach will introduce topics in a supportive, small-group environment and encourage participants as they explore how healthy eating, physical activity, behavior changes and weight loss can help them reduce their risk of developing diabetes.

Are you at risk?

Take this quick quiz to help determine if you may be at risk of developing diabetes or prediabetes.

“I am on my way to losing the weight I know I need to lose and am learning a lot about nutrition, emotions and harmful thoughts. This class is very different than I thought it would be. I didn’t know I would be learning so much like how emotions are tied to what we eat and how harmful thoughts can lead to self-sabotage”. - ARcare participant
