Prediabetes is a condition in which individuals have higher than normal blood glucose levels but are not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If you have prediabetes, you are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Within the next five years,15-30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes. Once a person has been diagnosed with diabetes, it can be managed, but it never goes away.

National Diabetes Prevention Program

The National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is offered to help people make necessary lifestyle changes. The program was designed and piloted in Indiana by the Indiana University School of Medicine, and has proven to prevent and/or delay type 2 diabetes. This program helped people cut their risk for diabetes in half!

In this year-long program, participants work with a trained "Lifestyle Coach" in a group-like setting to set personal goals, learn how to eat healthily, add daily physical activity, stay motivated, and problem solve issues that can get in the way of making healthy lifestyle changes. Each class meets for one hour:

  • Once per week for the first six months - then, upon completion;
  • Once or twice per month for the second six months to help with the maintenance of these healthy lifestyle changes.

There are only two goals:

  • Lose five to seven percent of your body weight if you are overweight (approximately 10-14 pounds for a 200 pound person) through basic nutrition education
  • Achieve 150 minutes of physical activity each week.

These lifestyle change programs are offered in two ways:

INspire Health

INspire Health is a virtual platform used to deliver the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Network (DPP) Platform with the goal of making DPP available to all eligible Hoosiers. This platform can be accessed either on a computer or a smart device, like a smartphone or tablet.

INspire Health gives participants the flexibility to complete the lessons whenever they want and wherever they are. To get the most out of the program, participants will need to commit 30-60 minutes each week. During this time, they will need to:

  • Watch the recorded weekly video lesson
  • Track their meals, exercise, and weight
  • Engage with their lifestyle coach through messenger and
  • Interact with other participants in the community chat.

With INspire Health, lifestyle change coaches will be able to track participants' meals, exercise and weight. They will also be able to communicate with participants through the platform’s messenger.

INspire Health can help people prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, reduce the risk of heart disease, lose weight and increase their energy.
