YOU CAN MAKE A CHANGE FOR LIFE

 

Putnam Independent Living Services and the Pawling Library partner to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program Virtually. 

Luke is one of the 84 million Americans who have been diagnosed with prediabetes, a condition where your blood sugar is high but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. He completed the Prevent Type 2 National Diabetes Prevention Program and had this to say “I’ve lost over 30 pounds.  It’s been a slow, steady change over the year I was enrolled in the Prevent T2 Program at Putnam Independent Living Services. I feel great!” 

One in three American adults have prediabetes. You can take the CDC Risk Test at https://doihaveprediabetes.org / for a quick (2 minute) answer to what your risk is for developing the disease.  If you’re at high risk it’s a good idea to see your health care provider for a blood test.  The good news is that with an early diagnosis prediabetes can be reversed.  With December kicking off the holiday season, it’s a good time to get started.  

By joining the National Diabetes Prevention Program you’ll learn how to make small changes, like altering your diet and exercising more which can help to reverse prediabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes.  You’ll read labels and make choices, keeping in mind that, if you plan for it, a small serving of your favorite holiday food it doesn’t have to be on the naughty list. 

You can help to holiday proof your plan by making sure you keep moving. Walking with friends and family is a great activity after a holiday meal. Even when the weather is chilly you can dress appropriately and enjoy the crisp winter air.  

Luke offers some advice “You have a lot on your plate this time of year so it’s also important to plan ahead and remember portion control.  Portion control was key for me.  Skip the seconds and stick to drinking water to eliminate high calorie beverages.”    

Prevent Type 2 is a one-year program that offers a Life Style Coach, a Center for Disease Control (CDC) curriculum and the support of participants like you who are ready to get serious. The Life Style coach helps participants reach the goal of losing 7% of their body weight and increasing physical activity to 150 minutes or more every week.    

PILS is partnering with the Pawling Library to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program free to adults in Dutchess County in January 2021. Sessions will be delivered to the group remotely and participants will need a phone, tablet or computer with internet access.  

Luke endorses the program heartily, “My tests show that I’m no longer prediabetic and I credit the Diabetes Prevention Program for the help and support. “

    Presented by Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Physician Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org.

    The excretory system is made up of numerous organs that work in unison to ensure that waste is effectively removed from your body. The primary organs are the kidneys, skin, and lungs; the accessory organs are the liver, gall bladder, organs of the urinary system, and large intestine.

    The skin is the largest organ of the body and it eliminates body waste through sweat. The lungs expel carbon dioxide from the blood, so respiration is a function of the excretory system. The kidneys, bladder, and urethra are part of the urinary system and in combination they rid the blood of excess nitrogen, urea, salts and water in the form of urine. The liver performs two functions for the excretory system. First, it breaks down toxins and transforms them, such as turning ammonia into urea, which are then excreted through the kidneys as urine. The liver also makes bile, which breaks down fat. Bile is then stored within the gallbladder, and it is released in the small intestine where it breaks down fat and ethanol. The large intestine removes any excess water from waste as it travels through the intestine. The remaining solid waste is then excreted.

    Disorders include: gall stones, diseases of the urinary system, diseases of the liver and large intestine, skin disorders. Ayurveda’s protocols ensure the proper elimination of toxins so that all systems function at their peak and the body can be kept in balance.
