One third of all American adults have prediabetes, and most (90%) are unaware of it. Without intervention, they are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes within as few as 3 years. An evidence-based program (CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Program) of behavioral coaching, diet modification and physical activity has been shown to be more effective than medication (Metformin) for helping individuals with prediabetes achieve and maintain a 5-7% weight reduction. Learn how you can integrate physical activity assessment, advice, prescription and referral into your clinical practice to help patients take charge of their own health, and what community-based physical activity resources are available to assist in the management of your patients with prediabetes.
