Prevent T2

Across the nation, PreventT2 helps Americans lose weight, exercise more and better manage stress in their lives. You can benefit, too. Participate in PreventT2 at OU Health Harold Hamm Diabetes Center in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

Cut Your Diabetes Risk by More Than Half

As a component of the National Diabetes Prevention Program led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PreventT2 starts you off on the right track. When you enroll in PreventT2 at OU Health Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, you’ll work with experienced endocrinology experts and certified diabetes specialists to achieve the best results for you.

Prevent T2 Program

PreventT2, a yearlong program for people with prediabetes or other risk factors, helps you lose five to seven percent of your body weight – that’s 10 to 14 pounds for a 200-pound person – by learning to eat healthfully and get more physically active. These steps will improve your overall health and prevent or delay the onset of the disease by cutting your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by more than half.

During the first six months, you’ll meet weekly for 16 weeks. Then, meetings switch to once a month for the second six months to help you maintain your healthy lifestyle changes. You receive support from a lifestyle coach and the group of your peers trying to make the same changes.
