There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed. Balancing the food you eat with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help you control your weight and can keep your blood glucose in the healthy range.  This can help prevent or delay complications. Many people with diabetes live long and healthful lives.  (See more on the American Diabetes Association Website.)

Janis M. Lando, RD, CDE (group facilitator) is a Registered Dietitian and also a Board Certified Diabetes Educator.  For many years, she has been passionate regarding education for Diabetes and prevention of complications.
When she found that she has Diabetes Type 2  (after her A1C = 7.6%). she was determined to gain control.  Now she is walking the talk and has her diabetes completely under control!

The goals of Diabetes Support in Havasu are to:

  • First and foremost to support others with the disease process and prevention of complications of Diabetes whether it is Type 1 or Type 2
  • To learn over lunch.  Each member of the group will be equally important and will share their concerns regarding their disease process.  They will benefit from sharing their experiences and learning will continue each and every month.
  • Recipes and phone numbers can be shared.
  • Guest speakers will be made available as requested.

The mission statement is:

Lunch and Learn:  We will keep it Sweet and Simple.
