Preventing Type 2 Diabetes

Preventing Diabetes

Are you at risk for diabetes? Family history, obesity, and gestational diabetes can contribute to developing diabetes. Poor diet and self-care can also lead to prediabetes. It’s estimated that 1 in 3 Americans have prediabetes. This is a serious precursor to developing diabetes, but there are steps you can take to prevent it.

  • Know your A1c numbers: Accellacare offers FREE A1c screenings. Being informed will allow you to know where you are and where you need to be so you can plan your diabetes prevention journey. [sign up for your free screening here]
  • Find your support system: Understand that preventing diabetes requires a positive lifestyle change. Having a strong support system to help you through those changes is key to success.
  • Set a goal: Small, achievable goals involving weight loss, physical activity, and healthy eating will allow you to advance in your diabetes prevention journey. Once you reach a goal, be sure to start striving for another tracking your progress along the way.
  • Talk to your doctor: Share your goals with your doctor and ask them about additional steps you may need to take to reach them. In some cases, medication like metformin may help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Some insurances may also cover weight loss or fitness programs.
