To enroll in PreventT2, you must a) have a BMI of 25 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 (110 to 125 mg/dL for Medicare recipients). | Calculate your BMI now
A documented A1C or fasting glucose from your physician’s office is required for Medicare recipients. All other insurance plans do not require documentation.
If you are a female with a history of gestational diabetes and a current BMI of 25 or higher, you are also eligible. No documentation of gestational diabetes is required. | Calculate your BMI now
The value of the PreventT2 program is estimated at $500. HHDC is able to offer the program at a discount, because of substantial support from our donors.
