Who is Eligible?
The Program is available to those individuals who are Prediabetic. There are several ways to determine this. There are blood tests that are part of a preventive exam, such as a fasting glucose or A1c, or you can take the CDC Prediabetes risk test. While this test alone is not always a deciding factor, it is a good indication or your eligibility.
Who is Not Eligible?
If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, are pregnant, or have a BMI (body mass index) below 25.
