Diabetes Prevention Program

STOP DIABETES BEFORE IT STARTS

It is estimated that half of Shasta County adults have prediabetes, and most don’t know it. The good news is, with a little exercise and change in diet, it can often be reversed, and that is where the Shasta Family YMCA can help.

Prediabetes is real and if left untreated is likely to develop into Type 2 Diabetes within 5 years unless preventative action is taken. 

A new Diabetes Prevention Program session coming soon!

Call 530-768-2185 for more information.

Why Participate In A Lifestyle Change Program?

Lifestyle change programs, such as the one offered through the Shasta Family YMCA, are proven to motivate and support people with prediabetes to make practical, real-life changes, and cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by more than half. That is a big deal!

By joining the Shasta Family YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, you will lose weight, boost your energy, reduce your risk for diabetes and improve your health! To join, call the prevention program coordinator at 530-768-2185 or keep reading for more information about the program.
