Did you know?

86 million people in the US have pre-diabetes?

You could have prediabetes and be at increased risk for Type 2 diabetes if you:

  • are 45 years of age or older
  • are overweight
  • have a family history of type 2 diabetes
  • have previous history of gestational diabetes or gave birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds
  • are physically active fewer than 3 times per week

One out of every three American adults have prediabetes and most don't know it. The lifestyle changes you make with the help of the Diabetes Prevention Program at Parkview can assist you in delaying or preventing type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic condition affecting all ages. It is controlled by a balanced approach of meal planning, exercise, and medication. The Diabetes Self-Management Program at Parkview performs prevention education, diabetes screenings, and diabetes self-management education for our community.

We also offer up-to-date information for individuals with diabetes to help make choices that will result in healthy lifestyle outcomes and fewer complications from this disease.
