Webinar: Diabetes Prevention – How to Reduce Your Risk
July 23, 2019|12:00pm
Have you been told that you have pre-diabetes, are borderline diabetic, or that you are at risk to develop diabetes? If so, you are not alone. There are 84 million Americans who have pre-diabetes. Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have “pre-diabetes” — blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during pre-diabetes. The good news is that scientific studies have conclusively shown that people with pre-diabetes can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by making changes in their diet, losing some weight, and increasing their level of physical activity. Join this noontime webinar to learn what you can do right now to prevent diabetes. Instructor: Shauna Hyde, RD, CDE, CPT, is a certified diabetes educator and personal trainer specializing in diabetes prevention and management, cholesterol management, weight loss, and blood pressure control. She has experience in research projects at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
