Prediabetes can lead to diabetes if proper steps are not taken. In this 12-month program, you will receive clinical and lifestyle coaching designed to support you in establishing health changes. Online tools will also be available to help you develop and achieve your goals. 

To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 24 (22 if Asian), and have blood tests within the last year that place you in the prediabetes range. 

Answer seven simple questions through the Centers for Disease Control Screening Test to find out your risk for prediabetes.
