Free pre-diabetes class at Henry County Health Center

Aug 04, 2017

Are your fasting blood sugars between 100 and 125?

Do you have a parent, sister or brother with diabetes?

Are you are overweight, inactive or have poor eating habits?

Are you extremely thirsty, urinate frequently or have unexplained weight loss?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should attend the free pre-diabetes class at the Henry County Health Center on Monday, Aug. 21, from noon to 1 p.m.

The class will be held in the Diabetes Education Center in Suite 25 at HCHC. Directions will be given when you call 319-385-6518 to register. Please register by noon on Aug. 18.

The purpose of the class is to help at-risk individuals reverse habits that may be leading toward a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes and its many complications. Topics will include an overview of the different types of diabetes, diet, exercise and diabetes prevention.

Approximately 90 million people in the U.S. have pre-diabetes and many are not aware of it. Recent research shows that some long-term damage, especially to the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during pre-diabetes.

For more information or to register for the class, contact HCHC’s Diabetes Education Center at 319-385-6518.
