Pre-Diabetes Program Offered at NorthPointe- March 8th

Friday, March 04, 2011

Do you need to know more about Diabetes? If you have a family presence of this disease, have been told you have high blood sugars, or have several risk factors, you may want to attend this free seminar. NorthPointe Health and Wellness is hosting a new "Pre-Diabetes Basics" class on Tuesday, March 8th from 4- 6 p.m. for people who want to prevent or delay diabetes.

"If your fasting blood sugars are between 100 and 125, you are considered pre-diabetic," explains Barb Hough, RN and Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). "This group of people is in epidemic proportions considering this is an estimated 57 million Americans. There is a lot you can do now to prevent or delay this onset, so our goal is to help you in this effort."

You are at high risk if you are over 45 and: are overweight, have high blood pressure, are inactive, have family history, and have high blood sugars. The class will offer nutrition, health and lifestyle information with a registered dietitian, nurse, and CDE.

No reservations are needed to attend this event in the NorthPointe Health and Wellness Community Education Room. For more information please call 608-364-5137. NorthPointe is located at 5605 E. Rockton Rd. in Roscoe.
