What is a Pre-Diabetic?

Patients classified as pre-diabetic have blood glucose levels higher than average but not high enough to be classified as diabetic. Those who are pre-diabetic can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes by making lifestyle modifications. Snell's Pharmacy Clinical & Diabetes Center offers a Diabetes Prevention Program for pre-diabetes patients at risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Increasing physical activity

  • Eating more vegetables

  • Eating less high-carb foods

  • Losing weight

  • Quit smoking tobacco if you are a smoker

  • Switching to water as your primary beverage

  • Limiting sugary drinks

DPP at Snell's Clinical and Diabetes Center

Our pre-diabetics diabetes prevention program (DPP) is a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program designed specifically to help prevent type 2 diabetes. This program is led by a trained lifestyle coach and is led over a 12-month period, beginning with 16 weekly sessions followed by monthly maintenance meetings. Although this may seem like a long commitment, gaining new and healthier habits and skills and building confidence will take time. 

 

Participants who joined our DPP were able to:

  • Lose 5-7% of their body weight

  • Increase weekly exercise by 150 minutes

  • Reduce the risk of developing diabetes
