Inside the Course:
Prevent, Delay & Manage Type 2

a self-paced diabetes education program for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes  

presented by the Sweet People Club  

At the Sweet People Club, our mission is to provide education, support, and community for individuals with prediabetes and type 2, and their families.

As a Certified Diabetes Education and Care Specialist, I see so much conflicting information out there that's totally wrong, or misleading, and sometimes downright dangerous.

Having high blood sugar doesn't have to be overly complicated or restrictive. Once you understand the basics of the condition and how to manage it, knowing what to do and eat becomes much easier. 

If that sounds like something you've been searching for, please keep reading to see what we've created for people exactly like you! (And me too!)

Prediabetes is often reversible

The earlier you're able to begin making changes to your lifestyle, the more likely it is that you may be able to entirely reverse your prediabetes. Unfortunately, that's not the case if it progresses to type 2 diabetes. So the time to act is now.

The great news is, you don't have to turn your life upside down to see a real impact to your health. Small changes, maintained over time, are not only the most likely to stick and become everyday habits, they're also the most powerful levels to turn your health around.  

Type 2 diabetes can be avoided, delayed or managed

For those who aren't able to reverse their prediabetes, all is not lost. Those same small changes and healthier habits that you would use to reverse prediabetes can also entirely prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. That can be a phenomenal boon to your health and greatly reduce your risk of other serious conditions.

Beyond prevention, you can certainly prolong the time it could take your prediabetes to transition into type 2 diabetes. Again, the benefits to delaying this are significant and worth the effort.  

High blood sugar increases risk for other serious diseases

Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes bring an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. And it goes without saying that having prediabetes increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes significantly.

The greater concern comes with type 2 as when left unmanaged over time, it often brings along several difficult to manage complications such as eye problems that could lead to blindness, kidney failure, nerve damage, depression, and an increased risk of vascular diseases like dementia.  

1 in 3 Americans has prediabetes
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) it is estimated that 1 in 3 adult Americans currently has prediabetes. That's roughly 84 million people. In addition to that, the rate of type 2 diabetes in young children and teens is increasing at an alarming rate. So if you've been diagnosed with prediabetes and you have kids in the home, making changes for yourself can influence your whole family and end up changing their lives for the better.  
9 out of 10 people don't know they have it. Do you?

And those 84 million American adults with prediabetes? 90% of them don't even know they have prediabetes. Prediabetes awareness is a real challenge as many people have never even heard of the condition.

Prediabetes often has no physical symptoms. There are risk factors that make you a likely candidate for prediabetes so if you have concerns, speak with your doctor about your risk and getting tested, especially if you have family members with type 2 diabetes. If you're not sure about your risk, take this simple 1-minute quiz.

Even though the motivation to reverse prediabetes and prevent or manage type 2 diabetes is clear, the path to actually doing that is anything but!

Prediabetes & Type 2 Diabetes Is Your Path To Wellness

Because knowing you've got it gives you an edge

So much conflicting information

So you get diagnosed with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes and what happens? Your doctor gives you a pamphlet, tells you to lose some weight and sends you off on a search for more information. If you're lucky, you may get a referral to a diabetes prevention program (on average only 5% do. Yikes!). And over 40% of people with type 2 never make it to an diabetes education program. (Double yikes!!)

But more than likely you head to the web and start looking for advice only to be confronted with what seems like one conflicting opinion after another. Don't eat fruit, low carb is the only way to go, start taking medications immediately, go paleo, get more B12. 

How can you tell what's legit and what's a crock? What's researched and supported by science and what's just some guy's opinion based on something that happened to his late Aunt Millie?

It's hard. And it's overwhelming. And your confusion and frustration are totally understandable.

Confusion about the condition

You tell your friends and family you have prediabetes or type 2 and they start telling you horror stories about insulin and needles and blindness. They start hiding the candy dish when you visit. Or they lecture you about what you're eating. They send you links to articles they found online that promise an instant cure through the use of an all bone-broth diet and some supplement that you can't pronounce. 

Don't get mad when people try to help. The overall lack of understanding around the condition of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes is a real challenge for people. To many, it sounds like prediabetes means you've got a case of "Diabetes Lite" and if you have type 2, your doomed. 

The best thing to do is smile and thank them for their concern. The community at the Sweet People Club understands this and is always here to support you when you're overwhelmed with all that "help." 

Lack of medical and community support

It can often be a challenge to get caring support from healthcare providers. Partly this is due to lack of awareness, although that's changing as campaigns are beginning to pick up steam thanks to the efforts of the CDC and the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The other part is due to a complete lack of time. It takes time to cover all the standards.

But what do you do for help in the meantime? Because every day counts. Every day you can adopt a small change or healthier habit can mean the difference between staying healthy and delaying, preventing or managing type 2. What can you do to get reliable, dependable, help and support?

The 5 Myths That Are Keeping You From Managing Your Blood Sugar
Totally Not True

"You'll Never Be Able To Enjoy The Food You Love"

You've heard it already. Maybe from a friend or from a loved one. Put down the bread. Stay away from the potatoes. Say goodbye to your favorite fruits. Why is it that some people love to tell us about all the food we "CAN'T" have?

Well guess what? None of that is true. Nothing is off the menu if you have prediabetes or type 2! 

But, you have to know how to eat in order to eat what you love. And you do have to contend with not necessarily being able to eat as much of the foods that you love as often as you'd like. 

One of the best ways to begin changing your eating habits towards healthier ones is not to focus on the CAN'T EAT list, but instead to focus on the CAN EAT list. Start ADDING new foods to your menu. Start ADDING new ways to prepare those foods. Don't SUBTRACT. Begin with addition!

Lies, All Lies 
"Prediabetes Always Leads To 'Full Blown' Diabetes"

First of all, let's get this straight - there is no such thing as "full blown" diabetes. 

There's prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes and gestational diabetes (and others, but let's stay focused). Type 1 diabetes is a very different disease and not one we cover much in the Sweet People Club. People who have type 1 diabetes typically get it as an adolescent or young adult.

Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes can be thought of as cousins. They share lots of things in common, but have their differences too. What is also incorrect is that people with prediabetes will always develop type 2 diabetes. The risk is greatly increased, sure, but there are no guarantees that an individual will absolutely progress to type 2. Some people never advance beyond prediabetes. 

Complete Exaggeration
"Type 2 Diabetes Means Eventually You'll Need To Take Insulin"

First if all, insulin should not be looked at as a bad thing. It's a lifesaver for those that do need to use it. But not everyone needs it, and if they do, not everyone needs it with every meal. It's very much dependent on the individual and their health priorities.

But there are many individuals with type 2 diabetes who can manage with healthy eating and being active. Some will also need to rely on oral medications to control their blood sugars or newer non-insulin injectables because there are at least 8 known deficits in the body for someone with type 2. If medications are needed, it's not because you've failed; your beta cells in the pancreas are limping along and need help! And people with prediabetes never have a need for insulin as part of a daily therapy. 

Worst Case Scenarios And Totally Avoidable
"I’m Going To Lose A Limb or Go Blind"

Okay, everyone's heard a story or two about someone's relative who had diabetes (it's always just diabetes, not type 1 or type 2 or anything specific, right?) who had a heart attack or who lost a toe because of their diabetes.

We've all heard the stories. 

And they could be true. These are genuine complications of type 2 diabetes that goes unchecked overtime, meaning those high blood sugars that stay high. But they happen over a long period of time - where the person hasn't been able to get their blood sugars in a safe range, maybe because they didn’t have the right information or support, or didn’t understand the consequences of letting their type 2 diabetes go untreated.

Be assured, these are truly worst case scenarios and almost always avoidable - especially for those reading this page. Because just the fact that you're here shows you're ready and willing to take action to never see anything like this. 

Harder, Yes. Impossible, No!
"It's Impossible To Lose Weight With Prediabetes or Type 2"

Your doctor told you to lose weight. Every article you've read about prediabetes and type 2 diabetes has said the same thing. Perhaps this is the one piece of advice almost everyone agrees on! Dropping even a small amount of weight - as little as 5% can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 58% according to Johns Hopkins! And even staying weight neutral, meaning by not gaining more weight, that's a positive since we all tend to gain a couple pounds per year as adults (are you doing the math in your head comparing what you weighed at age 20 vs. now?)

The good news is, it's not impossible.  

But it is more difficult and it can take longer. If you know how having high blood sugar affects your body and how your body processes food and how it handles physical activity, you can better optimize your efforts for maximum weight loss. 

And the Sweet People Club definitely has the "skinny" on how to do just that (wink! wink!)

"I'm gonna let you in on a powerful secret to changing your eating habits. Begin by ADDING healthy foods and not SUBTRACTING so called "bad" foods from your diet."

Introducing the
Prevent, Delay & Manage Type 2 Course
Where Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes Becomes
Your Path to Wellness
For Those With PREDIABETES...

One of the most powerful ways to begin learning what you need to know about your prediabetes is to participate in a diabetes prevention program such as the nationally renowned PREVENT T2 program developed by the CDC. These programs are considered the gold standard when it comes to prediabetes education and wellness.

But there's a catch. They’re almost all held in-person, on-site, and can often be quite costly if not covered by an employer-sponsored wellness plan. In fact, less than 1% are of the PREVENT T2 programs are entirely online AND available to the public (and they cost nearly $1,000).

That's where the Sweet People Club comes in. We have taken the PREVENT T2 program and adapted it to create an online option for those who either cannot squeeze 26 appointments in-person appointments into their already packed schedule! For those who don't have access to a reputable program or can't afford one. And for those who are just more comfortable using the web for their learning and development. 

For Those With Type 2 DIABETES...  

You have access to over 100 videos on everything from nutrition, to weight management, to how best to exersize, to the ins and outs of medication, to coping with the emotional aspect of the condition, to intimacy concerns, and way more. We're constantly adding new material.

We do invite you to explore the Prediabetes course because you will pick up ideas that still help those with type 2.

  • Physical fitness  
  • Stress management
Part 2

This module focuses on implementation of small lifestyle changes that when adopted long-term will result in a noticeably healthier and more active life.

Part 3
Maintaining Your Efforts

Module Highlights:  
We tackle the pitfalls in the last part of the program because at this point you know what to do and how to do it. But sometimes life throws a wrench in our well-laid plans. So this is where we discuss how you cope with that and come back strong. We also go more in depth into understanding type 2 diabetes and how to maintain your healthier lifestyle as you move beyond the program.
