Lark's Prediabetes Symptoms Scholarship

A healthy, active lifestyle and diet is so important to prevent many diseases including type II diabetes.  Spotting diabetes in advance consists of paying attention to prediabetes symptoms.  What are you doing to prevent and combat diabetes?

Chronic Diseases and Mental Health Conditions

Today, chronic diseases are among the most pressing problems in our society. They comprise 7 of the top 10 leading causes of death in the U.S. About half of U.S. adults have a chronic condition, and 1 in 4 are managing at least 2 conditions. Mental health is another important concern, with 1 in 5 Americans estimated to experience mental illness in a given year.

Prevention and better management are possible! Estimates are that 20 to 40%, and possibly up to 80%, of major chronic conditions, including certain types of cancer, stroke, diabetes, and heart disease are preventable with a healthy environment and lifestyle. For those who are already have chronic conditions, including mental health conditions, treatment and better management are often possible through lifestyle choices.

Small Start for Big Impact

True to our heritage, entrepreneurship and innovation have led to advances in chronic disease prevention and management. Lark Health Coach was the brainchild of Lark CEO Julia Hu. The app has been clinically shown to help users lose weight, and that's a big deal when you consider that each pound of weight loss lowers diabetes risk by 16% if you have prediabetes. Lark targets additional behaviors, such as eating right with a prediabetes diet, getting active, and managing stress, known to help prevent and manage chronic conditions. Reviews of Lark show the incredible promise of technology applied to solving big healthcare challenges.

Lark now has health coaching apps for weight loss, hypertension, prediabetes, and diabetes. Since Julia decided that she was going to make a difference in society, the Lark family of users has grown to 150,000 people who use Lark to prevent obesity or lose weight, or prevent or manage other chronic conditions.
