"Act Now: Pre-Diabetes is Reversible!" - Allyn February Topic for Diabetes Support Group Meeting

More than one in three Americans have pre-diabetes, and most don’t even know they have it.  A diagnosis of pre-diabetes is a wake-up call, and getting your blood sugar to a normal level before diabetes becomes a permanent condition can save you a lifetime of serious health risks.  The next Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics Allyn Diabetes Support Group meeting entitled “Act Now: Pre-Diabetes is Reversible!” will be presented on Thursday, February 22, 2018 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Port of Allyn building’s meeting room.  

MGH&FC’s Diabetes Wellness Program Coordinator Debbie McGinnis, RN, Certified Diabetes Educator, will discuss the prevalence and diagnosis of pre-diabetes, how to avoid developing diabetes, and the pre-diabetes classes offered by MGH&FC.  This meeting is open to those with pre-diabetes and to anyone in the community interested in learning more about diabetes and its prevention.  Time will be set aside for questions and answers.

The Allyn Diabetes Support Group, affiliated with the American Diabetes Association, meets every fourth Thursday of the month from September to June. These free meetings are designed to support, encourage and inform everyone in the community about diabetes and how it can be prevented and managed.   For more information call Debbie McGinnis, RN, BSN, CDE, at (360) 427-7332.
