Diabetes and the Root of the Problem (May '23)
About the Course
We know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. We also know that approximately 1 in 3 adults has prediabetes, and the majority of them are unaware of their condition. Prediabetes is a major risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. These are sobering statistics. But what can you do about it? While cholesterol and blood sugar(glucose) are important risks, that is often the extent of what is assessed in a standard approach. It’s clear that the conventional prevention strategy does not give us as clear an idea of all the tools available to assess our risk, nor does it dive deep into all the ways in which we can decrease our risk.
In this 5-week class, we take a deep dive into the risk factors, both genetic and environmental (it’s a lot more than losing weight and eating your vegetables). We think you’ll leave this class understanding better what causes heart disease and diabetes, how you can evaluate your risks, and what you can do about them.
Each of the five 90-minute sessions is conveniently online and will be led by Dan Lukaczer, ND, and Monique Class, MS, APRN-BC. The class is scheduled for 4:30-6:00 pm PST on Tuesday afternoons, May 9, 16, 23, 30, and June 6, and is open to anyone who would like to attend. Class size will be limited to 15 and registration closes May 1, 2023.
If you are a patient of Dr. Lukaczer, it can be billed directly to your insurance plan (co-pays and deductibles apply). You can find a list of insurances Dr. Lukaczer takes by clicking here. If your insurance is not listed, or you are not a current patient, the cash price is $425 and payment is due in full prior to the first class for cash participants. These classes will not be recorded to get the full benefit of the group experience, so live participation is required.
