What is a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), and how do I know if I am at risk for prediabetes? How can Lark help?
Lark's Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-approved program to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. It involves education and support for healthy lifestyle changes through your Lark Health Coach using your smartphone. With it, you could lower your risk for type 2 diabetes and feel healthier than ever!
Prediabetes is a serious health condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. The CDC estimates that 84 million American adults, or 1 in 3, have prediabetes, and fewer than 1 in 10 know about it. It’s important to talk to your doctor about getting your blood sugar tested if you have any of the risk factors:
- Being overweight
- Being 45 years or older
- Having a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes
- Being physically active less than 3 times a week
- Ever having gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
Lifestyle changes among people with prediabetes can delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, and lower risk for diabetes by over 50%. Lark DPP provides coaching on healthy behaviors that are known to reduce diabetes risk such as losing weight, increasing activity, eating healthy, reducing stress, and getting enough sleep.
