SECOND ANNUAL FREMONT-RIDEOUT DIABETES FAIR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21

Yuba City, CA- A recent study by the California Department of Health Services indicates that approximately 13% of adults aged 46-64 and 21% of adults aged 65+ in Yuba and Sutter counties have been diagnosed with diabetes.[1]  In addition, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey shows that nearly 25% of the people with diabetes in the United States are undiagnosed, so the actual diabetes prevalence in Yuba and Sutter counties is likely much higher. 

Because education is important in managing diabetes, Rideout Health Group is sponsoring a free Diabetes Symposium Saturday, November 21, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Fremont-Rideout Conference Center, 989 Plumas Street in Yuba City.

"This symposium is very important from a community education standpoint," said Dr. Jasbir Kang, symposium facilitator.  "The diabetes numbers in our area are significant, and reports indicate there are those who have high risk factors, but who have not been diagnosed.  In addition to the symposium topics, we will be offering free glucose, body mass index and blood pressure screenings, and local facilities will be on-hand with informational exhibits."

Topics for the symposium are:

•              "Overview of Diabetes Management," presented by Dr. Jasbir Kang

•              "How to Prevent Complications," presented by Dr. Yash Brar

•              "Eye Complications," presented by Dr. Pranav Amin

•              "Diabetes and Your Heart," presented by Dr. Patrick Griffith

•              "How to Make Best Use of Your Visit to Your Doctor," presented by Dr. David Miller

•              "Nutrition Update, Counting Carbohydrates," presented by Gayle Loredo, Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator

•              "Moving to a Better Life with Diabetes", presented by Candace Wittenberg, Doctor of Physical Therapy

The symposium begins at 8 a.m. with health screenings and time to tour the exhibits.  Sessions begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at noon, with time for questions following.  There will also be a mid-morning break.

                "It's extremely important that members of the community take advantage of this event," Kang said.  "With diabetes rates being what they are, patient education is critical for managing what is a growing condition."

                Seating is limited, for reservations please call 751-4245.  For more information call (530) 751-4280.
