Reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes

141381_Diabetes Infographics Rev2013-rgb-FNLThe YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based lifestyle improvement program for adults with prediabetes.  Its purpose is to empower adults with lasting lifestyle changes that will improve their overall health and reduce their chance of developing type 2 diabetes. Currently, diabetes affects nearly 29 million people. Another 86 million have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes, but only 11% are aware of it.

Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduce the number of new cases of diabetes by 58% overall and by 71% in individuals over age 60.

Assess your risk and learn more.

An information session will be held on Tuesday, July 29th at 11:30 am and at 6:00 pm at the Valley Y led by Mark LaFortune.  Mark can also answer all your questions and help assist you.
