If you or a family member has prediabetes, there are steps you can take to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. Goshen Health is offering a FREE class focused on learning more about making healthy food choices, moving more each day, staying at a healthy weight and managing stress. Plan now to attend the Proactive Diabetes Class on Monday, December 9 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Oak/Poplar room located in the main lobby of Goshen Hospital.
Diabetes is a condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. This happens because the body does not make enough insulin or it does not use insulin correctly (this is called insulin resistance). If you have prediabetes, progression to type 2 diabetes doesn’t have to be a sure thing. In fact, prediabetes can often be reversed. This class will review tracking your food and physical activity, setting goals, staying motivated and overcoming barriers. With support and lifestyle modifications, it is possible to delay or prevent diabetes.
This event is open to the public. Registration is required. To register or for more information, please call (574) 364-2746 or visit GoshenHealth.com/Find-Events
Diabetes Educators can meet one-on-one or in a class to help support lifelong modifications to prevent diabetes.
