Prevent Type 2 Diabetes with The Healthy Eating, Active Lifestyle
Beginning in July, classes will be held weekly on Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. at The Healing Garden on 2900 South Peoria Street, Unit D-1Aurora, CO 80014.
The PreventT2 program can help people with prediabetes cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half. The Diabetes Prevention Program research study showed that making modest behavior changes helped participants lose 5 to 7 percent of their body weight - that is 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds. These lifestyle changes reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in people with prediabetes.

--Be at least 18 years old;
--Be overweight (BMI ≥ 24; ≥ 22 if Asian);
