PreDiabetes Centers to Appear at Women’s Health Symposium in Houston
Date:4/17/2013

Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 17, 2013

PreDiabetes Centers, a national company offering new, advanced treatment for prediabetes, will appear at Prime Living’s 4th Annual Women’s Health Symposium in Houston on Saturday, April 20.

The event is from 9 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the University of Houston Sugar Land campus, and admission is free.

The Women’s Health Symposium is a yearly event where experts gather to educate women on healthy living and anti-aging. Top experts will address important women’s health topics including heart health, improving sleep, anti-aging, healthy digestion, revving up your metabolism, yoga, vitamins for healthy aging, massage, memory loss causes and treatments, hormone balance, cosmetics for baby boomers, alternative medicines, caring for aging parents, stress relief and more.

It’s critical that women take a more proactive approach in managing their health and wellness.

Aging women, in particular, are at greater risk for many health conditions, including diabetes.
Women 45 years of age and older are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes, compared to younger women, which is why experts recommend regular testing to screen for prediabetes and diabetes among this high-risk group.

Women with diabetes suffer more serious diabetes-related complications than men with the disease. The risk for heart disease is six times higher for women with diabetes than those without, while diabetic men only have a two- to threefold risk compared to non-diabetic men, according to a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Women with diabetes are also more likely to die of heart failure compared to men with the disease, reports the European Heart Journal.

Women with diabetes are also more likely than men with the disease to be obese and have poor blood glucose, high blood pressure and unhealthy levels of cholesterol.

And that’s not all.

Research shows there’s a strong association between diabetes and women’s mental health.

Depression is more common among women–they are twice as likely to suffer from depression than men–and it can raise the risk of diabetes, says an Archives of Internal Medicine study.

A woman’s race can also increase her risk for the disease. Diabetes is more common among women who are African American, Hispanic American, American Indian and Asian American, compared to white women.

Experts believe it’s important for women to catch diabetes while it’s still reversible. This early stage of the disease is called prediabetes, a condition that occurs when blood sugar levels are elevated but not yet high enough for a diabetes diagnosis. If caught early enough, women can stop the progression to type 2 diabetes and avoid the long-term health problems associated with the disease, including heart disease, kidney failure and blindness.

Women who want to learn whether they have prediabetes or diabetes can sign up for a free screening at PreDiabetes Centers. Women can also speak with a PreDiabetes Centers team member at the Women’s Health Symposium to get more information on complimentary prediabetes screening and integrated, holistic treatment options.

PreDiabetes Centers is a diabetes prevention company and specializes in the treatment of prediabetes. Treatment at the Center is customized for each client and is based on physician-directed medical care and lifestyle intervention. The company offers continuing biomarker tests throughout the personalized program to ensure that metabolic processes in the body related to prediabetes are being reversed.
