Mercy Health Offers Pre-Diabetes Classes

(CINCINNATI; January 8, 2013) -- Mercy Health, which provides quality care with compassion in your neighborhood, announces the schedule for pre-diabetes classes offered at Mercy Health locations throughout the community. Mercy Health added more classes to the ones we announced earlier this week.

Pre-diabetes is a condition that forms before diabetes. It means that blood sugar levels are higher than normal but aren’t high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Usually a fasting blood sugar level of 100-125 mg/dl indicates pre-diabetes.

Pre-diabetes is a warning sign that allows people to take action to prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes educators who are also registered dietitians teach Mercy Health’s pre-diabetes classes. Each class includes information on:

• Making healthy food choices
• Exercise and blood sugar control
• Monitoring blood sugar levels
