Preventing Diabetes Classes
People often have pre-diabetes before developing type 2 diabetes. Blood glucose levels are elevated, but are not high enough to be considered diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes can be delayed and even prevented with healthier habits during the pre-diabetes stage. The Preventing Diabetes classes teach you how increases in physical activity, an improved diet and other positive lifestyle changes can stall or prevent type 2 diabetes.
Please check with your healthcare provider to see if this pre-diabetes education is appropriate for you. (The classes are not intended for individuals already diagnosed with diabetes.)
Classes generally include two 2-hour sessions. Upcoming classes will be held on February 1 & 8 (10 am) or May 12 & 19 (5 pm) at Inova Diabetes Center-Fairfax, March 11 & 18 (5 pm) or June 10 & 17 (5 pm) at Inova Diabetes Center- Loudoun, or April 5 & 12 (10 am) at Inova Diabetes Center-Fair Oaks. To register for the Preventing Diabetes class call 1-877-511-GOAL (4625).
The Preventing Diabetes class does not require an order form from your physician or insurance authorization. You pay for your class at the time of registration. Because seating is limited, registration is required in advance. The program fee is $50.00.
