The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in adults ages 35 to 70 years who are overweight or have obesity. USPSTF notes that clinicians should offer or refer people with prediabetes to effective preventive interventions. USPSTF found convincing evidence that preventive interventions for people with prediabetes have a moderate benefit in reducing progression to type 2 diabetes. They also found adequate evidence that interventions for people with newly diagnosed diabetes have a moderate benefit in reducing the risk of death.
