National DPP Research and Return on Investment

CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs are proven to work and are based on research led by the National Institutes of Health. This research showed that people with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent (71 percent for people over 60 years old). This finding was the result of the program helping people lose 5 to 7 percent of their body weight through healthier eating and 150 minutes of physical activity a week. For a person who weighs 200 pounds, losing 5 to 7 percent of their body weight means losing just 10 to 14 pounds. It doesn’t take a drastic weight loss to make a big impact.

And the impact of this program can last for years to come. Research has found that even after 10 years, people who completed a diabetes prevention lifestyle change program were one third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. (Source: CDC-DPP)

CDC Toolkit

Diabetes State Burden Toolkit

This toolkit calculates and displays the health, economic, and mortality burden of diabetes in your state.

Diabetes Prevention Impact Toolkit

The Diabetes Prevention Impact toolkit predicts the health and economic effects of the National DPP lifestyle change program on a state, employer, or insurer’s population at risk for type 2 diabetes. Specifically, the toolkit allows users to estimate program costs, diabetes-related medical costs, and return on investment (ROI) along with other cost and health outcome measures. In the Employer and Insurer modules, users have the option to customize their results by entering employee/beneficiary-specific data.
