Say Goodbye to Diabetes: Meet Star Client Amy


A Diabetes Prevention Program Can Transform Your Life

Amy, a devoted mom and wife, is like a lot of women: Over the years, she poured every ounce of energy and attention into her family, leaving little time to tend to her own health and wellness. Approaching the age of 50, she knew her health wasn’t great and that she had to make life changes soon, before it was too late.

Amy got tested for diabetes, found out she had prediabetes–the earliest stage of diabetes–and then made the inspirational, life-changing decision to enroll in a prediabetes treatment program.

Today, months later, her life and health have changed radically. Read Amy’s story and find out how she beat an addiction to sugar.

30% Off PreD Homocysteine Support

spring-promo-prDid you know that when you eat meat it causes an amino acid called homocysteine to show up in the blood?

Your body needs homocysteine to function, but a bunch of homocysteine in the blood isn’t a good thing: Doctors have found that high homocysteine levels can lead to damage of the arteries, leading to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and blood clot formation. (Eek!)

If you have prediabetes or diabetes, you’re already at greater risk for heart problems. That’s why it’s especially important for people with the disease to manage their homocysteine levels and boost their heart health.

Our clinical team designed the nutraceutical PreD Homocysteine Support to lower homocysteine levels. It contains riboflavin, vitamins B6 and B12, and other health-boosting nutrients. To make it easier to attain homocysteine health, we’re giving PreD Store shoppers a 30% discount on PreD Homocysteine Support.

Online shoppers can redeem the discount on PreD Homocysteine Support by entering the coupon code SPRING30 at checkout. The offer expires April 30, so snatch up your bottle of homocysteine-lowering supplements today!

PreDiabetes Centers Provides Solution for the Diabetes Crisis and Reaches Americans with Prediabetes


Leading Health Organizations to Take Urgent Action to Prevent Diabetes in STAT Initiative

RISKExperts agree that diabetes is a crisis that’s only escalating, and there’s just one way to end the diabetes epidemic: We must identify people who have the disease early on–when the disease is in the prediabetes stage–so that we can stop the progression to diabetes when it’s still reversible.

There’s no doubt, diabetes and prediabetes are serious conditions that can lead to other debilitating conditions.

“It’s not only taking a physical and emotional toll on people living with prediabetes but it also takes an economic toll on our country,” said American Medical Association (AMA) President Robert M. Wah, MD, at a teleconference on March 12. “More than $245 billion each in healthcare spending and reduced productivity is directly linked to diabetes.”

The AMA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are launching the Prevent Diabetes STAT multi-year initiative, which stands for Screen, Test, Act – Today. The initiative calls on physicians and other health care providers to reach and treat more people with prediabetes.

PreDiabetes Centers recognized the seriousness of diabetes (and prediabetes) several years ago, and that’s why our medical team developed a solution for prediabetics that can help stop the development of diabetes.

PreDiabetes Centers offers free diabetes screening to the public. The screening looks at several biomarkers that are related to diabetes including fasting blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c, insulin, HOMA-IR, and cholesterol. The free screening identifies people with prediabetes, and our Centers offer flexible treatment plans for people who need health coaching, nutritional guidance, exercise counsel and physician-directed treatment for underlying metabolic disorders.

Here are some statistics to consider:

  • More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes, but 9 out 10 are unaware of their condition because the disease develops so gradually, it’s easy to ignore.
  • 15% to 30% of overweight people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years without diet- and exercise-related weight loss.
