Program! The program is offered remotely via computer, tablet, or smartphone!</p> <p>Vanderbilt's Diabetes Prevention Program has demonstrated its effectiveness at helping employees lose weight as a means of preventing Type 2 diabetes and has received a five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to expand the program using telehealth. <a

prevention efforts, </em>to learn more.</p> <p>Diabetes is an epidemic that is significantly affecting the health and future of the U.S.</p> <ul> <li>1 in 10 U.S. adults has diabetes, and if trends continue, 1 in 5 will have it by 2025.</li> <li>An additional 86 million U.S. adults - 1 in 3 - have prediabetes, which means their blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes. Without intervention, many people with prediabetes could develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years, which puts them at risk of serious health problems.</li> <li>With numbers like that, it's important to learn about prediabetes and take action.</li> </ul> <p>Health <em>Plus </em>is now offering the National Diabetes Prevention Program to Vanderbilt faculty and staff or spouse who have prediabetes or are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program is a one year lifestyle change program led by a trained lifestyle coach. During the first 6-months of the program, meetings are about once a week. During the second 6 months, meetings are once or twice a month. The curriculum is based on research that found people with prediabetes can cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half by losing 5%-7% of their body weight, improving food choi-ces, and increasing physical activity to at least 150 minutes per week.</p> <div class="media_embed"><iframe frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/shMODE8lzkk" width="560"></iframe> </div> <p><strong>Learn more: </strong></p> <p>If you have a Body Mass Index of 25 or higher (23 or higher if you are of Asian descent) and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, then you may be eligible to participate in the lifestyle change program.​</p> <p>You can determine your risk by:</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.cdc.gov/prediabetes/takethetest/#takethetest" target="_blank" title="Taking">Taking</a> the "Could you have prediabetes?" risk assessment quiz.</li> <li>Having a blood test to measure your blood glucose conducted by a health care professional.</li> <li>Fasting glucose test. This measures blood glucose in people who have not eaten anything for at least eight hours. Fasting glucose levels of 100 to 125 mg/dL are diagnostic of impaired fasting glucose (IFG), also called prediabetes. People with IFG often have had insulin resistance for some time and are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes</li> <li>Glucose tolerance test. This test measures blood glucose after people fast for at least eight hours, and two hours after they drink a sweet liquid provided by a doctor or laboratory. A blood glucose level between 140 and 199 mg/dL is called impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) also called prediabetes. Like IFG, it points toward a history of insulin resistance and a risk for developing type 2 diabetes.</li> <li>Hemoglobin A1c test. This test measures the amount of glucose that is on the red blood cells. Fasting is not necessary.
