BEATDiabetes

Prediabetes is an opportunity to

PREVENT Type 2 diabetes.

If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes, 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

YOU CAN DECREASE YOUR RISK OF DIABETES.

Type 2 Diabetes

Risk

  A combination of healthy eating, increased activity, and modest weight loss can cut your risk of Type 2 diabetes by more than HALF.

BEATDiabetes CAN HELP.

Our Prediabetes program delivers diabetes prevention advice  directly to your fingertips by text & offers incentives to help motivate you to take action. 

TIPS

Practical tips on healthy eating and physical activity will be delivered to you by text

3-5 times a week. The tips will focus on small changes that can add up to a big impact on your blood sugars, weight, and overall health.

REMINDERS

With busy lives, it is easy to get sidetracked and let other things take priority over your health. BEATDiabetes gives you the ability to schedule customized text messages reminders to exercise. You can also send yourself personalized reminders about your goals and reasons for getting healthy.

MOTIVATION

Good health is the ultimate reward for making healthy choices, but sometimes having a short term goal can help jumpstart change. You can earn entry in the $1000 BEATDiabetes Drawing held 3 times a year by getting your fasting blood sugar or hemoglobin A1C back into the normal (non-prediabetic) range. If you are part of a Diabetes Prevention Program, you can also earn entries by meeting weight loss targets.
