Pre-diabetes occurs when a person’s blood glucose levels are higher than normal, yet not high enough to be classified as full scale diabetes. Those who are diagnosed as pre-diabetic are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes within ten years.  But there is good news - knowing your risk and making healthier lifestyle choices can help you fight back against diabetes. In recognition of American Diabetes Month, we invite you to participate in a FREE diabetes risk assessment screening to learn if you are at risk for the disease. Please call 301-374-9098 to schedule your FREE screening. Appointments are available on November 6, November 13, and November 20 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Screening Center located at 11350 Pembrooke Square, Suite 314, Waldorf, MD.
