Are You at Risk for Diabetes?
New Pre-Diabetes class at St. Francis.
Approximately 54 million people in the U.S. have pre-diabetes and many are not aware of it. Pre-diabetes can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes. However research shows healthy eating and keeping active can delay or prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
St. Francis is offering a class outlining what you can do to reduce your risk of developing diabetes. This class is designed for anyone who has been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. However, those with a family history of diabetes may also be interested in attending. Participants will:
- Learn what pre-diabetes is and how it is diagnosed.
- Create a personal meal plan for good health and disease prevention.
- Learn to reduce fat intake and interpret food labels.
- Identify proper portion sizes both at home and when eating out.
- Create a personal physical activity plan.
- Develop a plan for reasonable weight loss.
The class is offered monthly and is led by a Registered Dietitian/Certified Diabetes Educator.
