DIABETES PREVENT IN ARE YOU AT RISK?

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

Can you measure a healthy life?
Sure, you can— by the cup, the ounce, and the block.
If you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can make small, measurable, changes that can reduce your risk and help you live a happier, healthier life.

National Institutes of Health research has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% overall and by 71% in people over 60.

CHANGE IS TOUGH—WE CAN HELP

Let’s face it; if the change were easy, we’d all do it. You’ve spent years developing habits that you can’t expect to change overnight. It’s tough.

We can help.

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program gives you the skills you need and the support you deserve to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes.
