Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) lifestyle change programs are classes designed to empower people with prediabetes to take charge of their health and well-being. Many DPP lifestyle change programs in San Diego implement the National DPP Program curriculum, which is an evidence-based and cost-effective program developed specifically for people with prediabetes to prevent the progression to type 2 diabetes. Research shows that lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 58% in people with prediabetes. Click here to learn more about the DPP Lifestyle Change Program.

Talk to your employer or insurance provider to see if the program is a covered benefit for you. If not, talk to your employer or insurance provider about offering the DPP lifestyle change program as a covered benefit.
