Diabetes Prevention & Control

Solid evidence has shown that early and aggressive intervention can reverse diabetes’ course for people with prediabetes and reduce its devastating impact on people already diagnosed with the disease.1

UnitedHealth Group offers information and resources to help people with diabetes or prediabetes.

The Diabetes Prevention Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based initiative designed to aid participants in losing a modest amount of weight, with the goal of helping them to avoid developing type 2 diabetes. Participants meet as a group and follow a curriculum to learn practical, everyday steps that can lead to a healthier lifestyle. The Diabetes Prevention Program also can be delivered over the Internet to people whenever and wherever they choose.
