Type two diabetes is caused by either the body not being unable to make enough insulin to meet it’s needs or not properly using the insulin it makes. This may take months or years to develop but Prediabetes may be diagnosed in the meantime. It is during this transition period that we have a great opportunity to reduce our risk of diabetes and to help improve our overall health.
North Shore Chronic Disease Services is pleased to announce our Diabetes Educators, will offer a free presentation on “Prediabetes – What Is it?” Bernice Evans and Ellie Mackay are Certified Diabetes Educators with years of experience educating clients of all ages and stages of diabetes. They will assist you in determining if you are at risk for diabetes and will bring insight into understanding what steps you can take towards prevention. The presentation is hosted by Caring Circle (432 Carder Drive in the Cove) at 1 p.m. on April 15. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
