Abstract

Diabetes prevalence is growing at epidemic proportions, and the greatest increase in number of cases is anticipated to be among old adults. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) showed that diabete can be prevented or delayed among people with pre-diabetes (impai glucose tolerance, impaired fasting glucose, or both). The National Diabetes Education Program has developed tools adapted from the DPP that primary care providers can use to counsel middle-age and older patients on diabetes prevention.
