Diabetes Prevention Program
Are you pre-diabetic and willing to prevent further implications?
The Center for Disease Control (CDC's) National Diabetes Prevention Program meets weekly for 16 weeks in a group setting, learning together different tools to help us to make healthy choices. There will also be 4 follow-up sessions (monthly) after the weekly sessions to help with accountability.
The program will focus on:
- Increasing activity (self goals)
- Improving food choices (keep diary)
- Losing weight, if overweight (5-7% of body weight)
Are you Pre-Diabetic?
Are two or more the following statements true for you?
- My blood pressure is 140/90 or higher, or I have been told that I have high blood pressure.
- I have been told that my cholesterol levels are not normal.
- I am fairly inactive. I do NOT exercise more often than two times a week.
