It’s World Diabetes Day!
November 14th is World Diabetes Day. Did you know that approximately 521,294 people in Louisiana have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association? It’s considered a growing epidemic in Louisiana.

In honor of World Diabetes Day, we put together a few short videos to walk you through what happens in the body to cause diabetes, ways we can exercise in our home or office to reduce our risk or live well with diabetes, and how to make better carb choices to keep our blood sugar under control.

Did you know we offer free Diabetes Self-Management Classes, as well as, free Pre-diabetes Classes? Email Jordan to learn more:  [email protected]
