If you are at high risk for type 2 diabetes, the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention program can help you adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles that will help you reduce your chances of developing diabetes.

The program helps those at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight in order to reduce their chances of developing the disease. Based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the program reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%.

The program at the YMCA of Greater Syracuse is recognized by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control
