Health Stewardship for March
As we prepare to celebrate the new life and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, part of our Lenten practice might be to examine our health stewardship. The typical American lifestyle has put us at increased risk of developing Diabetes.
March 28 is National Diabetes Awareness Day Did you know? Nearly 4 out of 10 adults have prediabetes. And, it can take up to 10 years for prediabetes to become diabetes. Thatís a lot of time to make changes and reverse the disease process. Evidence shows modest lifestyle changes and a 5% - 7% weight loss may help stop this progression. In some cases, individuals are even able to reverse their diabetes.
Please visit www.doihaveprediabetes.org for a simple-to-follow risk test and other excellent information to take action on this important health issue. You may also pick up a type2 diabetes risk test from the wall rack next to the main bulletin board. Feel free to contact our parish nurse, Marcia at 414-481-0520 through the church office; Tuesdays are the best days to reach her directly. You may also email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
