Farmington Hills, Mich. (April 25, 2013)---Botsford Hospital's Diabetes & Nutrition Services Department is offering its popular five-week, action-packed class to people who have prediabetes, which is when a person's blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during prediabetes. The good news---you can act to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes. Learn how to take better care of yourself by making needed lifestyle changes for diabetes prevention.
