Hi Anonymous,
Unity Diabetes and Endocrinology is offering our next session of the "Exercise and Weight Loss Program for Diabetes Prevention" to start Sept 5, 2013. The class meets once per week for 16 weeks with an optional time once/week to exercise under the guidance of an exercise physiologist. There are also four individual meetings scheduled during the 16 weeks with the class instructor and monthly support groups for the following 6 months upon completion of the class. The class fills quickly so if you are interested please call 368-4560, choose option 1 and ask for Sean Stark, the class instructor. To be eligible for the class you must meet certain qualifications to include a diagnosis of pre-diabetes or recent bloodwork with a fasting blood glucose in the pre-diabetes range. The focus of the class is to lose 7% of your body weight and increase moderate physical activity, such as walking, to 150 minutes per week. Both of these lifestyle changes have been proven to bring elevated blood sugars back into the non-diabetes range, therefore preventing the progression of elevated blood sugars into a formal diagnosis of diabetes. Again, if you are interested in attending the Sept class call now to see if there are still spots available; if not you may ask to be put on the waiting list for the next class session which begins in January, 2014.
