HOW IT WORKS
THE CASE FOR DIABETES PREVENTION
In addition to contributing to a healthy, productive workforce, diabetes
prevention enables employers to save significantly on health care costs.
THE ROI ON DPP
According to the Healthy Living Partnerships to Prevent Diabetes (HELP
PD) randomized control trial, individuals diagnosed with prediabetes who
participated in the DPP saw a savings of $2,277 in medical costs over 2
years, as compared to those with prediabetes who did not participate.
INCREASED DIABETES COSTS
In addition, the employee that goes on to develop diabetes will cost
on average 2.5 times more than the employee without diabetes.
