TYPE 2 DIABETES- A BIG PROBLEM FOR EMPLOYERS

Over 80 million Americans are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next few years. The costs from type 2 diabetes is estimated to be 327 billion. The American Diabetes Association estimates that $90 billion dollars is also lost in worker productivity each year from problems associated with type 2 diabetes.

Employers are increasingly interested in programs that can prevent type 2 diabetes in their workforce, in an effort to prevent the costs and complications associated with this preventable disease.

CDC’S DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM PREVENTS FUTURE COSTS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES

The Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) diabetes prevention program (DPP) is a 12 month diet and lifestyle program designed to help those at risk for type 2 diabetes lose 5-7% of their body weight, through diet and lifestyle changes, in an effort to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. The CDC’s DPP program is based on clinical research published in 2002 in the New England Journal of Medicine, indicating that participants who completed the CDC’s DPP program had a 58% risk reduction for developing type 2 diabetes.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services(CMS) conducted a financial analysis of the costs of type 2 diabetes and concluded that diabetics have $7,000 more healthcare costs than non-diabetics. CMS indicated that the CDC’s DPP program avoided costs of $2650 per participant from future costs associated with type 2 diabetes, even if participants did not complete the program.
