Dealing with diabetes in Dayton

Dealing with diabetes in Dayton

Diabetes is a prevalent and ever-growing problem across the United States and right here in the heartland.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Diabetes Association:

  • Approximately 1,334,918 people in Ohio, or 13.5 percent of the population, have diabetes.
  • Of those, an estimated 286,000 have diabetes but don’t know it, greatly increasing their health risk.
  • In addition, 35.3 percent of the adult population in Ohio have pre-diabetes.
  • On average, a person with diabetes spends nearly four times as much money on healthcare as someone who does not have diabetes.

Kettering Health Network Diabetes and Nutrition Center brings world-class diabetes care, education and research advancements to the greater Dayton area.

“Education is absolutely crucial for the management of diabetes,” Dr. Paul R. Glowienka, medical director of the Diabetes and Nutrition Center.

Anyone can sign up for a pre-diabetes class, but a doctor’s referral is required to attend the rest of our classes or to make an appointment.
