Event Description : 

Prediabetes Management, by Dr. Yuwen Winnie Xu, MD, Kaiser Permenente, San Francisco Hospital

Prediabetes means that your blood sugar level is higher than normal but not yet high enough to be type 2 diabetes. Without lifestyle changes, people with prediabetes are very likely to progress to type 2 diabetes. If you have prediabetes, the long-term damage of diabetes — especially to your heart, blood vessels and kidneys — may already be starting.

There's good news, however. Progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes isn't inevitable. Eating healthy foods, incorporating physical activity in your daily routine and maintaining a healthy weight can help bring your blood sugar level back to normal.

Prediabetes affects adults and children. The same lifestyle changes that can help prevent progression to diabetes in adults might also help bring children's blood sugar levels back to normal.

Dr. Yuwen Winnie Xu, Assistant Module Chief: Bilingual Chinese Module, Department of Family and Medicine, Kaiser Permenente, San Francisco Hospital, will share knowledge and her experieces working with patients on how to make lifestyle changes to manage prediabetes condition so you can learn how to do better self care to maintain good health!

Please note: this is one of a series of Chef Zhao Health Tea Time seminar, hosted by Chef Zhao's Bistro, provided by Sun Yat-sen University Alumni, with the dedication to share knowledge in optimal health to benefit our community.
