Prevent T2 Diabetes - Evening Class
New Diabetes Prevention Lifestyle Change Program
Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) levels are higher than normal – but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes; the most common form of diabetes. The good news is that prediabetes can often be reversed.
Topics during the 12-month CDC-developed and American Medical Association (AMA) approved program include:
- Eating healthy without giving up all of the foods you love
- Adding physical activity to your life, even if you don’t think you have the time
- Stress management
- Coping with challenges that can derail your hard work
- Getting back on track if you stray from your plan
Meetings will be held weekly (16 sessions) during the first four months, every two weeks (four sessions) during the next two months and monthly (six sessions) during the last six months. All educational materials and expertise/guidance provided by a registered nurse, registered dietitian, and exercise physiologist are included in the cost of the program.
