Find Out if You are Pre-diabetic

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, non-traumatic lower-limb amputations, and new cases of blindness among adults in the United States. The risk for stroke and heart attack is 2-4 times higher in individuals with diabetes.  One in 3 adults has pre-diabetes.  Are you at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes?  The Owen County Health Department will be conducting free Fasting Blood Glucose testing for adults at the Owen County Family YMCA on Tuesday, March 1, 7:00-9:30AM.  Testing will be done on a first come first serve basis.  You must fast, consuming only water, for a minimum of 8 hours prior to the test.    This special community service is being provided to support the YMCA’s efforts to curb the increase in cases of Type 2 Diabetes through the CDC-approved YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program.  For more information about this screening or about diabetes prevention, please contact YMCA Program Director Laura Gentry at 812-828-9622.
