    Diabetes Prevention Program

    Prediabetes is a condition that comes before diabetes. It means your blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. There are no symptoms and you may not know you have it. Our Diabetes Prevention Program is to help you know the lifestyle changes that can help you with this and prevent full blown diabetes.

    You can refer yourself if your risk assessment score is 5 or above or your doctor may refer you if you have an actual diagnosis of prediabetes.
    Call 515-961-1074 with any questions.
