Practical Approaches to Preventing Diabetes and Improving Your Health
Boulder Community Health offers free classes to help at-risk patients prevent
the onslaught of diabetes.
More than 80 million people in North America have pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes
is a condition that indicates you're on the road to developing diabetes,
a chronic and very serious health problem that increases your risk of
heart disease and stroke. To take this class, your hemoglobin A1c must
be between 5.7% and 6.4% or your fasting blood sugar between 101 mg/dl
and 125 mg/dl. Your physician can help you determine if you qualify.
Classes include discussion on the causes and progression of pre-diabetes
as well as instruction on diet and exercise techniques to manage blood
sugar levels and prevent the development of diabetes.
