Prediabetes is a condition where your blood glucose level is elevated, increasing your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Join this Health Action Plan to learn about the lifestyle changes you can make to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems.
If you’re not sure if you have prediabetes and want to find out, schedule a biometric/fasting lab appointment by calling 505-284-4700, option 1.

Your first step is to attend a 60-minute initial appointment with a certified diabetes educator to:
Review program details, review your baseline lab results and set your 7% weight loss goal.
Schedule an initial fitness consult to collect baseline biometrics, identify appropriate physical activities, and develop a plan for achieving 150 minutes of exercise per week.
Schedule follow-up appointments at six and 12 weeks to review your progress.
