Prediabetes: A Wake Up Call

This is a 4-week class. 

The number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes has tripled over the past 30 years. A combination of genetic susceptibility and lifestyle may be responsible for this dramatic increase over such a short span of time. The good news is that those who are at risk can slow the progression and even prevent diabetes from ever developing.

In this 4-session class, we will focus on the lifestyle changes that have been shown to delay and prevent diabetes more effectively than medications alone. We will discuss the basic physiology of the disease path towards diabetes, and zero in on what you can do specifically with nutrition, physical activity, better sleep and handling stress to slow, stall, and even reverse this path.

Instructor: Nicole Cooper, BS (Kinesiology), RD, CPT. Nicole helps clients pursue their personal goals — from weight loss to competing in half marathons, and currently coaches with BeWell at Stanford.
