Why You Should Attend:

Having pre-diabetes means you have a high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. You CAN take steps to prevent diabetes from developing. Once you develop diabetes, it won’t go away, so it’s better to prevent it in the first place.

Who Should Attend:

Pre-diabetes classes are for people who have a fasting blood sugar between 100 and 125. They are also for anyone who is at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. You are at risk for developing diabetes if you,

-Have a family history of diabetes
-Have blood pressure greater than 140/90
-Have low HDL cholesterol or high triglycerides
-Are African American, Native American, Asian American, Hispanic American or Pacific Islander
-Have been told by a doctor that you have 'borderline diabetes' or a 'touch of sugar'
-Are overweight and underactive
-As you get older, especially if you are overweight, your chances of developing diabetes increase
-Anyone over age 45 who is overweight should be checked for diabetes

Pre-registration required. Call (989) 894-9528

Cost: $25 payable at first class
