If you are at a high risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can help you adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle that will help you reduce your chances of developing diabetes. The YMCA, in partnership with Clermont Senior Services will be offering this program in the near future.
This program consists of 25 sessions over the course of one year. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help facilitate a small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes.
In order to qualify for the program, you must be 18 years old, overweight (BMI >25) and at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes indicated by a confirmatory blood value, pre-diabetes determined by a clinical diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes (GDM) during previous pregnancy, or a qualifying risk score.
