Diabetes Prevention Program

Has your doctor talked with you about prediabetes? You may be at higher risk of developing diabetes, presenting opportunities to be extra careful with your health. We can help you build a personalized plan to keep you as healthy as possible and lower your risk for developing diabetes. If you already have prediabetes, now is the right time to take control of your health.

Our team is dedicated to working with you to prevent type 2 diabetes through our Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), a year-long, lifestyle-change program. This program, fully recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), offers education on physical activity, nutrition, stress management and other important areas of your health. We also work with you to build strategies for overcoming challenges to sustaining weight loss.

To be eligible for this program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be overweight (BMI ≥ 25; if Asian ≥ 23)

Please check with your insurance provider to find out if the Diabetes Prevention Program and medical nutrition therapy are covered. To register for this program, contact Gritman Clinical Nutrition at 208-883-6341 or DPP@gritman.org.
