    Pre-Diabetes Awareness Night

    6:00 PM, $0

    November is National Diabetes Month and to help kick off the month and raise awareness about diabetes prevention, the Shelbyville Lions Club and Major Health Partners (MHP) are co-sponsoring a Pre-Diabetes Awareness Night. This Pre-Diabetes Awareness Night will be held at MHP Medical Center on Wednesday, November 1st at 6:00 p.m. and will include an informative presentation on pre-diabetes by Susie King, Diabetes Prevention Coordinator from the Indiana State Department of Health; a free, optional blood sugar screening test to determine if a person has pre-diabetes; and an opportunity to enroll in MHP’s free Diabetes Prevention program, a lifestyle change program offered for $450 elsewhere.

    The Pre-Diabetes Awareness Night will be held at Major Health Partners in the lower level auditorium, located at 2451 Intelliplex Drive, Shelbyville on Wednesday, November 1st at 6:00 p.m. and is best accessed via Entrance 2, Main Entrance. There is no charge to the public to attend this event, no reservation required. Seating is available for the first 50 people. Healthy beverages will be served.

    Pre-diabetes is a condition where a person’s blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetes. Many adults in Indiana have pre-diabetes and don’t even know – this could be you or your mom, dad or another family member. It is estimated that 1 in 3 adult Hoosiers have pre-diabetes and half of the people over the age of 60 have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most concerning, 90% of those people with pre-diabetes do not know they have it. If timely lifestyle changes are not made, the CDC estimates 15 to 30% of these people with prediabetes can expect to develop type 2 diabetes in the next five years.
