Diabetes Prevention: BIG Rewards – SMALL Steps

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 percent 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.

A LOT CAN HAPPEN IN ONE YEAR​

Program Goals:

  • Reduce body weight by 7%
  • Gradually increase physical activity to at least 150 minutes per week

In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will facilitate a small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over 25 sessions. The year-long program consists of 16 weekly sessions and three sessions every other week during the first six months followed by 6 monthly sessions in the second six months.

DO I MEET THE PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS?

FIRST:

  • I am at least 18 years old
  • I am overweight (BMI ≥ 25:  click to calculate BMI)
  • I am at risk for developing type 2 diabetes or have been diagnosed with prediabetes by a healthcare provider

DO I HAVE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING LAB VALUES OR DIAGNOSIS?

  • A1c:  (must be 5.7% – 6.4%)
  • Fasting Plasma Glucose:  (must be 100 – 125 mg/dL)
  • 2-hour (75 gm glucola) Plasma Glucose:  (must be 140 – 199 mg/dL)
  • Prediabetes determined by clinical diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes (GDM) during previous pregnancy

AND/OR

AM I AT RISK FOR DEVELOPING DIABETES?

Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes.  Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented in people with prediabetes through effective lifestyle programs. Take the first step. Find out your risk for prediabetes.

TAKE THE TEST – KNOW YOUR SCORE!

Answer these seven questions – for each “Yes” answer, add the number of points listed:   YES     NO      
Are you a woman who has had a baby weighing more than 9 pounds at birth?   1 0  
Do you have a parent with diabetes?   1 0  
Do you have a brother or sister with diabetes?   1 0  
Is your BMI > 25 (Use the calculator above.)?   5 0  
Are you younger than 65 years of age and get little or no physical activity in a typical day?   5 0  
Are you between 45 and 64 years of age?   5 0  
Are you 65 years of age or older?   9 0  
TOTAL POINTS FOR ALL “YES” RESPONSES:        

If your “yeses” scored  9 or higher, then you may be at risk for prediabetes or diabetes, and may qualify for the program.  This does NOT mean you have diabetes. You will need a blood test to confirm if you have diabetes.

Are you ready to join us?

Please contact your Branch Health & Wellness Director or Barbara Moore at 203.375.5844 ext 2619, for more information about the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program.

A Report On The Y’s Community Impact

December 31, 2014

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride that I share with you the strong impact made by the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA in 2014! With a special focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y served 88,492 kids, families, and adults in twenty five towns and cities including Bridgeport and New Haven.

Character development is at the heart of the Y’s mission, and the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility were modeled and taught to 32,677 youth in 2014. Through participation in programs including child care, youth sports, summer camping, and Youth in Government, character was built and positive values were reinforced.

Defined as the difference in academic performance between low-income kids and their more privileged peers, the education achievement gap begins early in life for many children. In 2014, the Y made great strides in closing the gap for 1,254 low-income children through the our 8 school-readiness programs, 38 after-school programs, and 10 summer camp programs with a special focus on developing reading and writing skills.

The Y has been teaching kids how to swim and be safe around the water for decades. In 2014, 8,408 children participated in Y swimming lessons and water safety education programs representing an increase of 11% as compared to 2013.

Overweight, obesity, physical inactivity, and poor nutrition affect most in our community. About one in four of our neighbors are pre-diabetic, and many do not realize the serious health consequences of leading an unhealthy lifestyle. In 2014, 47,444 youth and adults participated in health, wellness, education, physical activity, and diabetes prevention programs and services.

Chronic homelessness is a challenge faced by many families and adults, particularly in Bridgeport and New Haven. With a large team of social workers and an inventory of 415 apartments, the Y continues to serve as the largest provider of affordable and supportive housing in the state. In 2014, the Y and our partners reduced chronic homelessness by 18% in Bridgeport and New Haven.

As a source and resource for affordable programs and services, $3.0M in financial assistance was provided to 6,097 financially disadvantaged kids, families, and adults enabling participation in important Y programs or services.

I offer my special thanks to our partners, donors, staff, and the 834 committed volunteers who donated 32,439 hours of their time to help the Y fulfill its mission which is:  

To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

With best wishes,

David Stevenson, President & CEO

YMCA Diabetes Prevention

Change Today For A Healthier Future

Prediabetes affects over 86 million Americans. Are you one of them?

Let the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA help you learn if you might be prediabetic.  And put you on a path to a healthier future.

Prediabetes is a potentially reversible condition that often leads to diabetes, and 86 million people in the United States are estimated to have it. If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes, or believe you may be at risk for developing the disease, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can help you develop a healthier lifestyle.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gets to the root of the diabetes epidemic by helping those at high risk of developing the disease make lifestyle changes. The program focuses on healthy eating, increased physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.

Based on effective efforts researched by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program will help you learn about and adopt the healthy eating and physical activity habits that have been proven to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  Through the program you will receive support and encouragement from both a trained lifestyle coach and fellow classmates as you develop a plan for improving and maintaining your overall well-being.

 

About the Program

As a leading nonprofit for strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y believes that all people should be able to live life to its fullest, healthiest potential. In the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program a trained lifestyle coach will introduce topics in a small classroom setting and encourage participants as they explore how healthy eating, physical activity and behavior changes can benefit their health.

The 12-month group-based program consists of 16 core sessions, followed by monthly maintenance sessions led by a trained lifestyle coach who facilitates a small group of people with similar goals.

Discuss topics such as healthy eating, increasing physical activity, reducing stress, problem solving, and much more.

Stay motivated to maintain progress towards program goals with monthly maintenance sessions.

The Central Connecticut Coast YMCA is forming classes throughout the area!

Arts & Crafts can be a fun way to encourage creativity in children and help them focus their minds on completing a set task.  For older children Arts & Crafts is a way to gain a better understanding of artistic and design skills that could help in their futures.

Programs run throughout the school year.


Youth and Government Program

Youth and Government is a national YMCA group that involves thousands of teenagers worldwide in programs that model their state government.  The New Haven YMCA has been participating in the Youth and Government program since 2006.  Between October and March of each year, the teens in the Youth Center meet once to twice a week to discuss and debate issues in their state and to learn how to draft legislation concerning these issues.

The objective of the program is to teach leadership training, public speaking, critical thinking, community activism, political knowledge, and the development of research, reading and writing skills for academic enhancement.  The youth’s hard work and dedication is rewarded in a weekend conference at the Legislative Office Buildings in Hartford where they present their bills to other YMCA teens across the state.
