How to Lower Your Risk of Diabetes

The YMCA has invented a cheap, successful program that teaches at-risk patients how to avoid the condition.

Retired accountant Paul Mullen weighs in before a diabetes prevention class at a YMCA in Indianapolis, Tuesday, June 23, 2009. Mullen, 66, of Indianapolis, has lost 18 pounds and brought his blood sugar down because of lifestyle changes he learned in the program. He pays $115 for the yearlong program, on top of his Y membership fee.
