Lohman Diabetes Education & Prevention Network
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 30.3 million people who have diabetes and 84.1 million who have pre-diabetes in the United States. These numbers are rapidly increasing. If diabetes is not controlled, it can lead to serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney problems, nerve damage, amputation, sexual dysfunction, memory loss and more. So it is very important to know where to get help to prevent and manage diabetes.
Both Halifax Health Diabetes Education Services and the YMCA/Halifax Health Healthy Living Centers offer specialized services that can help you and your family prevent or manage diabetes.
