Diabetes Prevention

Pre-diabetes affects 1 in 3 American adults and more than 86 million Americans with pre-diabetes will be diagnosed with diabetes within 10 years if there is no intervention. But you can help prevent diabetes by joining Sanford Health in our diabetes prevention program. If you take control now, you can make these realistic changes last.

The Diabetes Prevention Program is a year-long program consisting of:

  • 16 core sessions offered weekly or bi weekly
  • Followed by 6 monthly sessions
  • Focus is on healthy eating and increasing activity
The goals of the program are to lose 7 percent of your body weight and increase physical activity to a minimum of 150 minutes per week.
