Abstract

Diabetes and prediabetes have become an epidemic in the United States. The keys to battling this public health challenge are effective screening and evidence-based interventions. Studies show that intensive lifestyle interventions, medications, and weight loss surgery can reduce or delay new-onset type 2 diabetes. This article reviews the steps clinicians can take to help patients stay ahead of this disease.
