United Hospital District will be offering a free 2 hour class on November 10 from 5:30-7:30 for those wishing to learn more about diabetes. This class is taught by our diabetes instructor and our registered dietician. It is a special class for any person with diabetes or those wanting to know more about this chronic disease. This class is especially useful for newly diagnosed diabetics and their families as diabetes management requires many healthy lifestyle changes which will impact the entire family. During this class you will be taught more about diabetes and learn things such as what you can eat, how physical activity improves your disease management and how medications help lower your blood sugar. Additional topics to be covered include preventing complications of diabetes like blindness, kidney disease, heart disease and amputation.
