Diabetes Prevention Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is shown by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent Type 2 Diabetes. It’s a lifestyle change program for people with prediabetes that can help you:

  • Lose 5-7 percent of your body weight.
  • Increase your physical activity routine to 150 minutes per week.
  • Stay motivated to achieve your health goals.
  • Manage your stress.
  • Track the food you eat.

Classes are offered in a group setting in the community, at clinics, and online. A DPP Lifestyle Coach will support you for 1 year. Most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medi-Cal, cover the cost of the program. For those without insurance, the cost can range from $429 or more for the 1-year program.
