Senator Anwar to Hold Informational Session on Diabetes Awareness, Treatment and “Diabetes Undone” Sunday in East Hartford

EAST HARTFORD – During Diabetes Awareness Month this November, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) plans to hold an informational session regarding the disease, proper treatments and “Diabetes Undone.” By addressing the causes of type 2 diabetes through treatment and lifestyle changes, Diabetes Undone is an organization dedicated to helping millions of Americans become healthier. On Sunday, November 24 from 1-3 p.m at the East Hartford Community Cultural Center, located at 50 Chapman Place 1st floor-room 103, Sen. Anwar will discuss with experts and the public ways of improving health and reducing the risk of diabetes.

“Diabetes Awareness Month is the perfect time to hold an event all about cessation of negative lifestyle elements that can contribute to the development of diabetes,” said Sen. Anwar. “I look forward to speaking with members of the public about how we can best prevent and undo type 2 diabetes through smart, healthy choices.”

Currently, 26 million Americans have diabetes, and another 79 million have prediabetes. These conditions are not only themselves medically harmful, but raise the risk of an individual developing other diseases. What’s worse is that modern treatments focus on the disease’s symptoms without the cause. Through Diabetes Undone, a research-tested intervention program that includes information on forming new habits and making better nutritional and exercise choices, can help individuals not only alleviate diabetes symptoms but reverse the disease, also helping combat heart disease, obesity, cancer and autoimmune disease, among other health conditions.
