Diabetic Living - - LIVING WELL -

With 1 in 6 peo­ple with pre-di­a­betes, you are not alone. How­ever, it can feel over­whelm­ing and chal­leng­ing to change your lifestyle. Get sup­port from your fam­ily, friends, co­work­ers and oth­ers who might be go­ing through sim­i­lar chal­lenges. Do any of these peo­ple need to take the same ac­tions you do? Per­haps you can part­ner up for suc­cess. Is there a group of peo­ple striv­ing to live a health­ier lifestyle at your work? Whether you look on­line or join your state’s pre­ven­tion pro­gram (be­low), there are plenty of places you can go to if you’re at high risk of di­a­betes.
