Diabetes Prevention During the Holidays and All Year Round

Diabetes Prevention during the Holidays and All Year Round

Our lifestyle affects our health. And that means there is a lot we can do to protect ourselves from preventable health conditions, like type 2 diabetes for example.

What is type 2 diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes happens when the body becomes unable to use insulin effectively. And it is largely preventable. Though you can’t control risk factors such as age or race, you can make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.

How to reduce your risk

Bonus! Omada weight-loss and management program
If you're at risk for type 2 diabetes, the Omada weight-loss and management program can help you take action toward a healthy lifestyle.

Check your eligibility for the Omada program. Plus, talk with your doctor about other preventive measures you can take to protect yourself from type 2 diabetes.

UC Blue & Gold HMO has you covered with the care you need, when you need it.
