Your Adventure Against Diabetes

Spain Web Banner

Every day, more than 5,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with diabetes. Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, and millions more could develop it within the next few years. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there are many simple steps you can take to protect yourself from diabetes. If you already have it, there are ways to help avoid complications such as nerve damage, heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure. If you don’t have it, there are ways to prevent or delay its onset.

On Tuesday, January 7th, Hy-Vee's Chef Tracy taught a cooking class focusing around a Spanish cuisine. While the attendees enjoyed the delicious final product, our UI Women's Health clinical expert presented current information on the many steps you can take to manage your weight, lower diabetes risk, and boost your overall health.
