Our focus is not just on childhood obesity but also on diabetes prevention, diet and exercise, together with behavioral health interventions.
Here are just a few of the recent statistics on diabetes:
Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes.
Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $245 billion.
Its never too late to prevent diabetes, diabetes research has shown obesity sedentary life style and unhealthy diet leads to diabetes. The good news is Diabetes is preventable is manageable. The latest nutrition guidelines from the ADA are actually quite similar to the healthy eating recommendations for everyone else. Modest weight loss may provide clinical benefits (improved blood sugar, blood pressure, and/or blood lipid levels) - especially those early in the disease process. Registered Dietitian, Pat Baird, joined ABC 7 Eyewitness News to discuss ways to eat healthier, and prevent diabetes.
Most adult men have a heart age greater than their actual age, placing them at increased risk of having a heart attack or stroke. We focus on prevention with a healthy living diet, exercise and men's health workshops. The purpose of Men’s Health awareness is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.
