Diabetes disproportionately affects older adults. The associated healthcare costs, morbidity, and mortality rates also increase with age. However, the majority of studies assessing clinical outcomes as part of the CDC's National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) utilized a cohort with an age range beginning at just 18. In this work, we report results from a retrospective subgroup analysis of participants in Lark's DPP aged 50-85 years at time of enrollment (n=360). We found average weight loss after approximately one year to be 4.3% (p-value < 0.001), demonstratingLark's DPP to effectively engage and drive clinically significant health improvement for the older adult population.
