AARP Hawaii Neighbor Talks:

Learn How to Decrease the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

More than 442,000 adults in Hawaii (41.5 percent of the population) have prediabetes, making them at risk for getting Type 2 diabetes* within 10 years.  The good news is that this condition is reversible with lifestyle modifications such as diet, exercise and medication.    Join a fun, interactive session that will provide you with information that can help you recognize the signs of pre-diabetes and provide tips about lifestyle changes you could make now that could prevent you from becoming diabetic later. 

*In Hawaii, 154,365 adults suffer from diabetes and another 442,000 adults (41.5% of the population) have what is known as “Prediabetes.” Having diabetes can result in serious health complications like stroke, amputation, kidney failure and heart attacks.  For those with prediabetes, the condition is reversible
