Weight Watchers Program for Type-2 Diabetes | WW USA

WW and diabetes prevention

Millions of people are estimated to have prediabetes and don't even know it.¹ WW's proven weight-loss program can help you take control of your health.

Weight loss is key in preventing type 2 diabetes

Positive lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and being more physically active, not only lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes but also improve your overall well-being.

Research shows that WW can help those with prediabetes lose a significant amount of weight and improve blood sugar control.†
