B.R. Ryall YMCA encourages community members to learn risk for developing diabetes

As part of National Diabetes Awareness Month in November, the B.R. Ryall YMCA of Northwestern DuPage County is encouraging community members to learn more about diabetes and what puts people at risk for developing the disease.

One in three Americans has prediabetes, which means their blood glucose is elevated but not enough for a diabetes diagnosis, according to the B.R. Ryall YMCA. Only 11 percent of those with prediabetes know they have it.

Community members are invited to learn their risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes by taking an assessment at www.ymca.net/diabetes-prevention.

Participants will learn how various factors, including race, age, weight, activity level and family history affect their risk for developing diabetes.

To learn more about B.R. Ryall YMCA’s healthy living programs, contact Megan Schici, health and wellness director, at 630-858-0100 ext. 219 or mschici@ryallymca.org.
