Approximately 88 million American adults—more than 1 in 3—have prediabetes. Of those with prediabetes, more than 84% don’t know they have it.

Omada is a personalized program that surrounds you with the tools and support you need to reach your health goals, whether that’s losing weight, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing risk of getting diabetes, or improving overall health. The program offers:

  • Tracking of meals, steps, and physical activity.
  • Weekly lessons you can complete from your phone.
  • A dedicated health coach for professional one-on-one support.
  • Virtual support group of peers.
  • Wireless smart scale that is digitally connected to the app to help you keep track of progress.
