Inclusion Criteria:
Eligibility criteria included being an employee aged 18 to 65 and having a body mass index (BMI) of 25.0 to 50.0 kg/m2 and prediabetes. The 7-item American Diabetes Association risk assessment questionnaire was administered to determine risk for type 2 diabetes, and those with a score of 5 or more were classified as potentially eligible and screened for any exclusionary criteria. Eligible participants had fasting finger-stick glucose levels of 100 to 125 mg/dL, indicative of prediabetes. Individuals with fast-ing glucose levels of 95 to 99 mg/dL or 126 to 140 mg/dL completed a second finger stick to assess hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c); HbA1c levels of 5.7% to 6.4% indicated prediabetes and study eligibility.
Exclusion Criteria:
Individuals with HbA1c or glucose levels above the indicated ranges were advised to see their physician and excluded from participation.
Research Purpose:
This study evaluated the efficacy of a worksite lifestyle intervention on metabolic and behavioral risk factors compared with usual care.
