According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2012, 1 out of 3 American adults (86 million) had pre-diabetes. In 2010, diabetes was the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. Diabetes increases the risk for heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and loss of toes, feet, and legs.
The Prevent T-2 program is designed specifically for those who are prediabetic, at risk for type 2 diabetes, or wish to lower their risk of it. The program usually has participants losing 5-7% of body weight after 6 months and maintaining their new body weight by the end of the year.
Life Fitness Health Club offers for those interested a free no-obligation Prediabetes Screening Test approved by the CDC. The year-long program may be covered by some medical insurance providers.
