Orange City Area Health System (OCAHS) will host a Prediabetes Class on Monday, March 11, from 5-7pm in the lower level training room on their main campus at 1000 Lincoln Circle SE in Orange City. Prediabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that people with prediabetes can prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes by up to 58 percent through changes to their lifestyle that include modest weight loss and regular exercise. The prediabetes class, led by OCAHS Diabetes Care Coordinator Kate Then, RN, will offer help and advice in preventing diabetes. Cost is $25 and includes dinner. Pre-register is required.
