Are you at risk ? 1 in 3 people in the US have prediabetes and 90% do not know it. If you are the 1 in 3, then the Diabetes Prevention Program is for you. Pre diabetes is a condition that comes before diabetes. It means blood glucose (sugar) levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be called type 2 diabetes. Your doctor may have told you that having pre diabetes can negatively affect one’s health and, if not treated, may progress to type 2 diabetes. Take control and ask your doctor if you are on a path to Type 2 diabetes. Those of you at risk for diabetes (1 in 3 of you) can make lifestyle changes now that help to prevent or significantly postpone that diagnoses. Diabetes is a serious disease. Know your numbers and make the changes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) has been shown to significantly reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes. The program is now offered in neighborhood settings across the country. See below where DPP begins this fall in Charleston & Dorchester Counties of SC. Call ACCESSHEALTH Tri-County for more information 843-743-2777. Make the choice to take control of your health today.

Recipe: The Only Pad Thai Recipe You’ll Ever Need

The google celebration of Pad Thai took us down this path this morning.Popular recipes for pad thai use cheap, plentiful rice noodles, and an assortment of vegetables that could be easily sourced from local farmers. Gastronomica notes that settlers from southern China likely brought some rudimentary version of the stir-fried rice noodle dish to the country a very long time ago. Plaek Pibulsonggram, Thailand’s prime minster from 1938 to 1944 and from 1948 to 1957, is largely credited with popularizing the dish and establishing the basic recipe that’s still commonly used today.
Fine tune yours with what is fresh locally. Enjoy. From Jet Tila’s new book ‘101 Asian Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die’ 11/07/2017
