Don’t let the “pre” in pre-diabetes fool you! Currently 1 in 3 adults have pre-diabetes, which is equal to 80 million adults. If left untreated, more than half will develop type-2 diabetes in five years. To help individuals prevent or delay the onset of type-2 diabetes, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) undertook a multi-year, multi-location clinical study to develop the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The CDC study found that even small changes in lifestyle habits will result in weight loss and reduced risk of chronic disease.

HabitNu x FFC Can Help

For the past four years, HabitNu has been leading the efforts to reverse pre-diabetes by helping individuals develop healthy habits that last! The HabitNu program has been recognized by the CDC as a fully-covered medical benefit for Medicare and Medicare Advantage members and is now being offered to eligible members at Fitness Formula Club (FFC). Visit https://www.habitnu.com/ffc to see if you qualify.

When you join HabitNu, you will be matched with a FFC lifestyle coach who will remain with you through the duration of the program, helping you modify your health behaviors, creating new habits and nudging you to stay motivated and engaged. You will be able to access a set of digital tools that includes a downloadable HabitNu app with a food diary, exercise log, short weekly videos, text messages and a peer support forum to help you learn the right ways to stay healthy. Within a few weeks of entering the program, you will start experiencing weight loss and notice improvements in your health.
