Prevention of diabetes is all about healthy living. The choices you make can help prevent the onset of diabetes; choose a healthy diet, choose to be physically active and choose to maintain a healthy weight and you can reduce your risk of diabetes.
The National Diabetes Education Program offers an online booklet "Small Steps. Big Rewards." to help determine your risk of diabetes and help implement a prevention plan to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes.
At Conway Regional, we offer assistance for those managing diabetes. If you are newly diagnosed with diabetes we encourage you to talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate for the Diabetes Self Management Program. Visit the Diabetes Self Management Program page for more information on our education program or call the diabetes education office at (501) 513-5248 or (501) 932-3236.
