Did You Know? Prediabetes Increases Cancer Risk

OrganicBerries

According to a new study published in Diabetologia, prediabetes increases a person’s risk for several cancers, including endometrial, liver, stomach or colorectal cancers. Fortunately, researchers noted that lifestyle changes can treat and even prevent this condition. You can read more about the study here, but this is a reminder that doctors are making people aware that prediabetes is a disease in itself. If you or someone you know has prediabetes,  please seek help, as this can save your life or the life of a loved one.

As a Health Coach, I can help you make simple, effective, lasting diet and lifestyle changes. You will learn how to eat foods that nourish and satisfy you – not ones that leave you feeling sluggish, sick, and bloated. I will also teach you how to manage your stress, find an activity you love, get better sleep, seek a form of spirituality that fulfills you, and much more. In addition to working with me, you can also join your YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program. I am facilitating the Diabetes Prevention Program at the Culver-Palms Family YMCA in Culver City. We started our first class for our September 2014 session on Tuesday night! This is a great way to learn more about healthy eating and living, so I encourage you to work with a Health Coach, talk to your doctor, or join your local YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program.

You are in charge of your health. The decisions you make on a daily basis determine how healthy you are – your health is in your hands. Make good choices. I can help.
