To enroll in PreventT2, you must a) have a BMI of 24 or higher and b) have prediabetes. Prediabetes is defined as an A1C level between 5.7 and 6.4 percent or a fasting blood sugar level from 100 to 125 mg/dL. If you are a female with a history of gestational diabetes and a current BMI of 24 or higher, you are also eligible. No documentation of gestational diabetes is required. | Calculate your BMI now
Our PreventT2 enrollment process includes a short assessment of your risk, along with medical documentation of prediabetes within the past 12 months. If you do not have lab documents to share with us, don't let that stop you. We'll let you know if we need to screen you in our clinic or at a PreventT2 session.
Enrollees pay a one-time discounted fee of $199. Cash, personal check (payable to Harold Hamm Diabetes Center), or a major credit card is accepted.
Employees of the University of Oklahoma, OU Medical Center, OMRF, and the VA: If you achieve a modest weight loss of 5 to 7 percent in the first six months of PreventT2 and have maintained the weight loss after 12 months of participation, HHDC will REIMBURSE $100 of your fee to you.
This is a limited-time, introductory offer. Special rates and incentives will not necessarily apply for future PreventT2 enrollment periods.
