Diabetes Prevention Program

If you’ve been diagnosed with prediabetes, you’re now covered by Medicare and most insurances to take advantage of a new Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP). Sun Health offers one of the only qualified MDPP programs in Arizona. The MDPP aims to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes among those who have been diagnosed with prediabetes. This year-long lifestyle change program includes:

» Nutrition education for long-term dietary change
» Practical instruction and motivation to increase physical activity
» Problem-solving strategies to overcome challenges of losing weight and keeping it off

Take the brief test below to see if you may have prediabetes. See your health care provider and request a blood test to find out if you are prediabetic.
