This online toolkit helps health care professionals identify, counsel, and support patients at risk for type 2 diabetes. It includes prediabetes screening information, strategies for talking to patients about prediabetes, and multiple tools and resources to help patients make lifestyle changes to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
