TAKE OUR BRIEF QUIZ!

If you answered YES to 3 or more questions, take our quiz to see if our S.MA.R.T. Lifestyle Program for the prevention of prediabetes is right for you.

A lifestyle program for a healthier you!

96 million American adults – more than one in three – have prediabetes and more than 8 out of 10 don’t know they have it. Did you know prediabetes raises your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke? Without changes to lifestyle such as weight loss and moderate physical activity, prediabetes can develop into type 2 diabetes within 5 years.

Diabetes is a leading cause of death in the United States. Yet, losing weight by eating healthy and getting more active can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 50%. If you have prediabetes or other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, now is the time to start making healthy lifestyles changes and take control of your health.

Are you at risk for chronic illness?
A family history of diabetes could contribute to your risk for type 2 diabetes.
Having high blood pressure contributes to your overall risk for type 2 diabetes.
Prediabetes is a condition in which a person’s fasting blood glucose levels hover around 100 to 125 milligrams per deciliter. If you choose to measure using the glycated hemoglobin figures (A1C test), a prediabetic range would be from 5.7% to 6.4% glycated hemoglobin.
According to the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, you need only 3 of the 5 risk factors to be diagnosed with cardiometabolic syndrome. They are: 1. Waist size >40 inches in men, and >35 inches in women. 2. Fasting blood sugar >100 mg/dL or A1C 5.7 % 3. High blood pressure (anything above 130/85) 4. Elevated triglycerides >150 mg/dL 5. Low HDL ("good") cholesterol, <40 mg/dL for men or <50 mg/dL for women. Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself. Instead, it's a group of risk factors -- high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol levels, and abdominal fat.
Being inactive can increase your risk for type 2 diabetes.
Changing one’s lifestyle can be a constant, difficult struggle. For sustainable progress one must adopt and incorporate these changes into one's social setting. Belonging to an exercise group, confidence in managing the lifestyle adjustments and handling of challenges through continual support and and following the S.MA.R.T. Lifestyle plan are crucial in maintaining and adhering to the new lifestyle.
