Kronos Optimal Health Company Aims to Stop Diabetes Before It Starts

PHOENIX, April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 54 million American adults have prediabetes, but many of those people may never have to live with diabetes and all of its health complications thanks to a new prediabetes lifestyle management course created by Kronos Optimal Health Company. It is estimated that 60 percent of prediabetics can avoid diabetes altogether with manageable lifestyle choices.

"When someone is pre-diabetic, they don't qualify for a disease management program because they are not diabetic so they are usually told to lower their blood sugars by eating healthier and they are left on their own," says Susan Kaib, MD, medical director of Kronos Optimal Health Company. "Helping people lower their risks before a disease is much more effective."

The Kronos Prediabetes Program is designed to help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. The 14-week course gives a better understanding of what causes prediabetes, ways to lower blood sugars, and how to make healthy and manageable lifestyle changes, including more physical activity and smarter food choices.

Excess weight is a key risk factor for diabetes, but also one of the most preventable risks. The Kronos Prediabetes Program includes a proven, common-sense approach to reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. Studies have shown that losing as little as 5-10 percent of body weight (just 9-18 pounds for a 180-pound person!) can lower blood sugar levels and improve a person's overall health.

The course is conveniently offered through weekly live Web classes led by an experienced Kronos Health Educator trained in prediabetes and diabetes prevention. Those taking the course receive expert, personalized education, plus the support of other prediabetes course members.

Corporations can also take advantage of offering the course to their employees because as Dr. Kaib says, "associated healthcare costs for a diabetic can cost a company more than $7,600 per year alone."
