18 [ The Lovell Chronicle [ March 1, 2012 Pre-diabetes to be discussed at next diabetes support group meeting Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects 25 million Americans. The American Diabetes Association re- ports that 18.8 million Americans are diagnosed, and about 7 million are not yet diagnosed. Not even added into these statistics are the 79 million Americans who are currently living with a condition called "pre-diabetes." A huge number of people, 79 mil- lion, are headed down the road of a de- bilitating chronic disease. That's the bad news. The good news is that even though millions of people are cur- rently on that road, they are not nec- essarily doomed to arrive at the desti- nation of diabetes. By implementing some lifestyle changes, which will in- clude diet and exercise, diabetes can be avoided altogether or at least put off for years. "Pre-diabetes" is diagnosed when blood glucose is higher than normal, but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. It is a red flag, a big warning sign that can and should be taken as an opportu- nity for improvement. There is sci- entific proof that when individuals take charge of their lives, determine to live healthfully, and then consis- tently adhere to that commitment, their risk of developing diabetes is significantly lowered. North Big Horn Hospital spon- sors a diabetes support group, which meets the first Thursday of every month at 1 p.m. For this month only, the date has been changed to March 8 at 1 p.m. The public is invited to attend this meeting on March 8 and participate in education and a dis- cussion on the importance of recog- nizing and controlling a pre-diabet- ic condition. The meeting will be in the multipurpose room at New Hori- zons Care Center.
