Diabetes Prevention Program
YMCA OF GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY

MEASUREABLE PROGRESS. UNLIMITED SUPPORT.Let’s face it, if change were easy, we’d all do it. You’ve spent years developing habits that you can’t expect to change overnight.  It’s tough.  We can help.  The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and the support you deserve to make lasting changes.

 

The Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating heathier, increasing physical activity, and losing a modest amount of weight. In a safe, supportive environment, participants work together to learn strategies for making behavior changes that will improve their overall health and well-being. The program is led by a trained Lifestyle Coach in a classroom setting and consists of 25 sessions over the course of a year. Program goals include reducing body weight by 7% and increasing physical activity to 150 minutes per week.

CAN I PARTICIPATE?

To qualify for the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program, you must be:

• At least 18 years old

• Overweight (BMI ≥ 25)*

• At risk for developing type 2 diabetes or have been diagnosed with prediabetes** by a healthcare provider (assess your risk below)

*Asian individual(s) BMI ≥ 22
** Individuals who have already been diagnosed with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes do not qualify for this program.

AM I AT RISK?

Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented in people with prediabetes through effective lifestyle programs. Find out your risk for prediabetes by taking a quick risk quiz.

If you scored a 9 or higher, then you may be at risk for prediabetes or diabetes, and may qualify for the program. This does NOT mean you have diabetes. You will need a blood test to confirm if you have diabetes.

Do you have one of the following lab values or diagnosis?
 
  • A1c between 5.7%-6.4%
  • Fasting Plasma Glucose between 100-125 mg/dL
  • 2-hour Plasma Glucose between 140-199 mg/dL
  • Prediabetes determined by clinical diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes during previous pregnancy

Supportive Lifestyle Coaches

Everyone needs a push, a pat on the back or a helping hand sometimes. A little encouragement goes a long way when you’re making big changes. Our specially trained Lifestyle Coaches will support you on your journey to better health, with motivation and encouragement along the way.

The Research

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% and 71% in adults over age 60.
