Information

Diabetes Type 2 may be preventable!

The diagnosis of pre-diabetes is determined by a fasting blood glucose test:

  • Normal if your blood sugar is less than 100
  • Pre-diabetes if your blood sugar is 100 - 125 (or an A1C of 5.7 - 6.4)
  • Diabetes if your blood sugar is 126 or higher

Research has shown you may be able to lower your risk with:

  • A 5 - 10% reduction in weigh if your are overweight
  • Moderate exercise/activity (150 minutes per week)

Our diabetes and nutrition staff can help you understand what pre-diabetes is and how to reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Register for one (or all) of these FREE classes located in the JRMC Specialty Clinic.
