Live a Healthier Life
Prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes with this program.
You may have prediabetes and not even know it. Learn how to live a healthier life and avoid type 2 diabetes by participating in the Diabetes Prevention Program at your Henry County YMCA. The Y will host a kickoff event on Thursday, March 4, from 6-7 pm where you can learn about the details of the program and see if you are a good fit.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal. Diabetes affects more than 29 million people. A condition called prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes... 89% of them don't even know they're at risk. Diabetes has no cure, but prediabetes can be reversed.
The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is a small group that helps people with prediabetes eat healthier, increase their physical activity and lose weight, which can delay or even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. This program is made possible through a partnership with Henry Community Health.
