Prevent T2 is alifestyle change program is a structured program—in person or online—developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes. It is designed for people who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, but who do not already have diabetes.
A trained lifestyle coach leads the program to help you change certain aspects of your lifestyle, like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. The program also includes group support from others who share your goals and struggles.
This lifestyle change program is not a fad diet or an exercise class. And it’s not a quick fix. It’s a year-long program focused on long-term changes and lasting results.
A year might sound like a long commitment, but learning new habits, gaining new skills, and building confidence takes time. As you begin to eat better and become more active, you’ll notice changes in how you feel, and maybe even in how you look.
Given our focus on health practitioner education, a lot of the information we have at the library is written for health care providers, not regular folks. Fortunately, many of our products have information written for health care consumers. These items are marked with the University of Toledo shield logo. To access these materials, you will need to be on campus (HSC or MC) or you will need to log in with your name and Rocket ID. For questions regarding access, contact the Library at 419-383-4225. In addition to linking to licensed resources, this guide also links to high-quality information from other sources.
