Pre-Diabetes Screening & Living With Diabetes


We are faced with so many food choices these days, especially processed foods, that it's easy to eat badly. Unhealthy eating and other lifestyle choices can lead to the development of diabetes. Carolinas Healthcare System and the YMCA recognized the rise in North Carolinians with Diabetes and an even larger number of folks at risk for developing the condition. They have introduced a program to help everyone recognize the signs of diabetes, take steps to avoid developing it and to learn to maintain, and in some case, reverse the effects. CHS and the YMCA are out to raise diabetes awareness and we'll learn too.
