How Fruit Street’s Diabetes Prevention Program Can Help 88 Million Americans With Prediabetes
My name is Laurence Girard and I am the CEO & Founder of Fruit Street Health which is a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program designed to help people with prediabetes reduce their risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.
More than 88 million Americans have prediabetes which means that they have elevated blood glucose levels and have a high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. This means 1 in 3 Americans have prediabetes. To see if you are at risk for prediabetes, you can take a 1-minute risk quiz on our website www.fruitstreet.com or watch this cute puppy risk-quiz video:
If you do have prediabetes, the good news is that you can reduce your risk for Type 2 diabetes by more than 58% by enrolling in a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program such as Fruit Street Health.
Our program is 12-months long and involves 26 1-hour long classes with a registered dietian and 30 other participants on Zoom covering topics such as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management. We will also issue you a wireless scale, Fitbit, and you can take pictures of your food in the Fruit Street mobile app to get feedback from your dietitian throughout the week. You can check out a quick video about our diabetes prevention program here:
One of the greatest parts of the program is that you will be in a support group and virtual community with other participants. Plus our program works and our clinical outcomes have been reconigzed by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
