Diabetes workshop November 7 at Friendship Center

Posted

CLINTON — More than one and three adults in Illinois have prediabetes, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Higher than normal blood glucose levels raise your risk of heart disease and stroke as well as type 2 diabetes. This fall, learn how you can lower your diabetes risk in the free University of Illinois Extension class Wake Up Call – Eating to Avoid Diabetes.

In Wake Up Call, learn about small steps you can take, from losing a small amount of weight to choosing healthier foods, that can help prevent prediabetes from developing into diabetes.

• 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. November 7 at the DeWitt County Friendship Center, 410 E. Main St., Clinton. To sign up, contact Paula at (217) 935-9411 or dcfc4u@frontier.com by November 5.
