Diabetes Awareness and Prevention | Gestational and Type 1, 2 Diabetes | Tzu Chi Healthy Community

Tzu Chi Medical Foundation is pleased to invite Jennie Quon, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes care and education specialist, to talk about diabetes awareness and prevention.

Millions of adults are living with diabetes. Having prediabetes means your blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes can sometimes lead to type 2 diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Yet, prediabetes can often be reversed or delayed. Therefore, it is very important to raise diabetes awareness and to educate everyone on possible symptoms and ways to reduce risks.
