Lifestyle Change Class Offered in Crosslake

National Diabetes Prevention Program

Learn how to create a healthier lifestyle and prevent diabetes in a 22-session diabetes prevention program. Groups will meet with a trained instructor to help participants lose weight, eat healthier and increase physical activity. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based, lifestyle change program that offers diabetes prevention education and support for people with prediabetes.

Pre-diabetes involves blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diabetes. An individual with pre-diabetes can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by making simple lifestyle changes. Diet and moderate exercise resulting in a 5-7% weight loss (usually about 10 -15 pounds) often work to bring blood sugar levels back down to a healthy range.

There will be 16 sessions offered over 6 months, and 6 monthly follow-up sessions for the remainder of the year. Each session is one-hour long.
