Diabetes Prevention Can Make a Difference

According to the CDC, the National Diabetes Prevention Program reported an observed weight-loss of 5-7% in program participants over a 1-year period and a 58% reduction in the incidence of diabetes in pre-diabetic study participants who received education on lifestyle modification, nearly twice as much offered by metformin , the leading medication to manage diabetes, over a 3-year period.
