Last year, I needed to lose weight due to (high) blood sugar. I was referred the Diabetes Prevention program by my doctor. I (have) lost the weight and lowered my( blood) sugar to acceptable levels. Several people at the office have commented on weight loss. The Diabetes Prevention Program is a great program and if it is covered by our (State Health Plan) insurance, I know several people who would love to take advantage. Great program!

At the beginning of this program, I thought it was going to be a diet program. I soon learned this was not to be. I have been on diets all of my life and nothing worked and I was so tired of everyone harping on dieting. This is a change of lifestyle and thought process. It took many months and 20 pounds and I realized, my taste had changed and I was eating different foods and less of them. This program worked for me and is one I can continue on for life.
Diabetes Free NC is a collaboration between NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Together we are able to offer onsite and online diabetes prevention programs across the state of North Carolina.
