  • Borderline diabetes is prediabetes.
  • 9 out of 10 people don’t know they have it.
  • If you do have it, you also have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart attack, and stroke.
  • Without a change in lifestyle, 15 to 30% of prediabetic people will develop type 2 diabetes in 5 years.
  • But research shows that even after 10 years, people who completed a diabetes prevention lifestyle change program (like Weight Watchers) were one-third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

Increasing your activity and reducing your weight can help prevent borderline diabetes, and that’s what Weight Watchers is all about. You’re in the right place.
