This is a calculator designed to accompany a research study driven by Tufts University that is investigating the relative risk reduction of adopting a DPP lifestyle on type 2 diabetes onset.
This calculator was not designed for client-wide utilization and is not recommended to use this calculator unless the organization is part of the study.
Target patients are prediabetic patients aged 25-75.
