Have you been diagnosed with pre-diabetes? Take steps to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in your future.

Before someone develops type 2 diabetes, it almost always begins with a diagnosis of “prediabetes”—a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Diabetes doesn’t have to be inevitable and can be delayed, if you learn how to take charge of your pre-diabetes now.

Each workshop is designed for individuals diagnosed with pre-diabetes, as well as anyone who would like to learn more about pre-diabetes and diabetes.

You’ll learn:

- What pre-diabetes means for your health
- Risk factors
- Diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes

You’ll receive:

- A helpful book about pre-diabetes
- Informational handouts
- Pedometer
- Blood glucose meter

- Taught by certified diabetes instructors (Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian) and presented by the CMH Diabetes Education Department.

$25 registration fee.To register for a session, please call 218-878-7661

Location: CMH Diabetes Classroom
