a self-paced prediabetes management program

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

As a Certified Diabetes Educator, I see so much conflicting information out there that's totally wrong, not quite, and sometimes downright dangerous. Prediabetes 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!)

Sincerely,

Theresa Garnero

HERE'S WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW

  • 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 delayed or avoided For those who aren't able to reverse their prediabetes, all is not lost. Those some 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.  
  • Prediabetes increases risk for other serious diseases Prediabetes is indicative of increased risk of heart disease and stroke. And it goes without saying that it 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 have they it 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.  

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

Prediabetes 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 and what happens? Your doctor gives you a pamphlet, tell 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!) 

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 is totally understandable.

Confusion about the condition: You tell your friends and family you have prediabetes and they start telling you horror stories about insulin and needles and blindness and that crazy thing that happened to their late Aunt Millie. 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 is a real challenge for people. To many, it sounds like you've got a case of "Diabetes Lite" and they assume that if people with diabetes are on insulin, people with pre-diabetes will do even better on insulin.

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: With the lack of awareness around prediabetes, it can often be a challenge to get active support from healthcare providers - although that's changing as awareness campaigns are beginning to pick up steam thanks to the efforts of the CDC and the American Diabetes Association (ADA). 

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

The 5 Myths That Are Keeping You From Managing Your Prediabetes

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! 

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, and type 1 diabetes. 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 "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 heatlhy eating and being active . Instead they rely on oral medications to control their blood sugars or newer non-insulin injectables. 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 lost a toe or three because of their diabetes. Or was it Aunt Millie who didn’t have all the newest medications and eventually went blind. 

We've all heard the stories. 

And they could be true. These are genuine complications of uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. But they happen over a long period of time - where the person hasn't been taking good care of themselves, 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" 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!

That's a pretty big drop in risk for what's likely little overall weight loss. But if you have prediabetes, you may find yourself having a harder time dropping that 5 to 7%%. And that's because part of prediabetes involves insulin resistance and having an efficient pancreas really helps with weight loss efforts.

The good news is, it's not impossible.  

But it is more difficult and it can take longer. If you know how prediabetes 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  

Prediabetes Masterclass

Sweet People Club Prediabetes Masterclass Computer Mockup

Where Prediabetes Becomes Your Path to Wellness

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.

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. 

The PREDIABETES MASTERCLASS is the ONLY program of its kind that…  

1. Is administered entirely online using audio, video, and written resources 2. Doesn't require doctor approval or health insurance approval to participate 3. Has a flexible schedule that allows you to take in the material at your own pace, at a time that is convenient to you 4. Benefits from the contributions of several certified and credentialed experts (like dietitians, exercise physiologists, nurses, and psychologists) in their respective healthcare fields, adding to our already robust PREVENT T2 program 5. Provides community support and an opportunity to address your questions and concerns  

So if you’re ready to finally stop combing through all those dicey online "medical" blogs and get down to learning the reputable, science-based information and guidance we've gathered for you...  

Here's how we can help you manage it all:

Part 1

The Basics You Need To Know

In this module we cover all the basics you need to know about prediabetes. What it is, how it works, and how it affects your health. In each module you'll find options for video, audio, and written content. In addition to the core content, there will be downloadable PDF trackers, cheatsheets, and resources to make your progress a little easier. 

Module Highlights:  

We'll begin with an overview of the program. The program itself is broken into 3 main parts, the whole of which will cover the course of an entire year. In part 1 or months 1-3, we'll introduce our main areas of focus: 

  • Weight loss or maintenance  
  • Physical fitness  
  • Stress management  

Part 2

Beyond The Basics

In this module we really build upon concepts that were introduced in part 1. This part of the program spans months 4-6 and will give you an excellent understanding of how to manage your prediabetes. This module focuses on implementation of small lifestyle changes that when adopted long-term will result in a noticeably healthier and more active life.  

Module Highlights:  

This module really runs that gamut from mindset and taking charge of your thoughts to finding time for fitness, how to stay heart healthy, and how to get the support that you need to make managing your prediabetes...well, manageable!  

  • Staying motivated  
  • Coping with triggers  
  • More about carbs  

Part 3

Maintaining Your Efforts

In the final module, which spans months 7-12 we start to look at problem-solving. What are the obstacles, set backs, and speed bumps you're likely to encounter on your journey to a healthier you?  

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.

  • What to do when weight loss stalls  
  • Quitting smoking  
  • Getting back on track when you slip up
