November is American Diabetes Month

  • Diabetes affects nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. today—nearly 10 percent of
    the population.
  • Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
  • Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless we take steps to Stop Diabetes®.
  • Every 19 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • African Americans and Hispanics are almost twice as likely to have diabetes as non-Hispanic whites.

Being overweight or obese is a leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Being overweight can keep your body from making and using insulin properly, and can also cause high blood pressure. Research shows that moderate diet and exercise of about 30 minutes or more, 5 or more days per week, or of 150 or more minutes per week, resulting in a 5% to 7% weight loss can delay and possibly prevent type 2 diabetes.

The Peter B. Lewis Aquatic & Therapy Center offers several options to help you:

• Personal Wellness Profiles

• Personal Coaching appointments

• Supervised Health Maintenance Program Membership


For the Month of November:

Answer the weekly Diabetes trivia question on Facebook or submit your answer to the front desk. We’ll draw each weekly winner on Fridays in November. Different prizes each week.

Also, to raise awareness, we offer a quick 2 minute Prediabetes Screening Test located at the front desk. Take the test and know your risk.
