Christian Health Care Adult Day Services of Wayne is hosting a diabetes awareness program sponsored by The Valley Hospital from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 6, at 2000 Siena Village (off Valley Road) in Wayne. “Diabetes Awareness – Turning Your Risk Around” is being presented by internist Erhan Kucuk, MD, Valley Medical Group.
There are a growing number of people who are developing the condition known as pre-diabetes. In the 65 and older age group, this could be as high as 50 percent. Knowing the risk factors, self-care steps, and the “tripod” approach to prevention and treatment at early stages can all contribute to improving patients’ quality of life.
