Living Well With Diabetes

Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says six week courses on “Living Well with Diabetes” will be offered this spring. She says whether you have been living with it a long time or were just diagnosed it will help you manage it. She says 475,000 residents in Wisconsin have diabetes and another 1.4 million people are pre-diabetic. The course will be offered on Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to Noon from April 27th through June 1st, and Fridays from 1 to 3:30 p.m. from May 19th through June 23rd at Agnesian Health Shoppe on Camelot Drive in Fond du Lac. She says they will have more sessions in the future at a variety of locations and times. The course is free, but registration is required. That can be done online at Mueller says the course will teach you what you need to know about physical activity, food choices, and medications associated with diabetes. She says it’s hoped it will help reduce emergency room visits.
