June 10, 2014 – "Dining with Diabetes: A Program for Adults with Diabetes and their Families," is designed to teach those with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes how to manage their condition. The series will be held on Tuesdays, from 2-4:30 p.m. at the Adams County Agricultural and Natural Resources Building, 670 Old Harrisburg Rd. Classes in the series are scheduled for March 11, 18, 25, April 1, 8 and a follow-up class on June 10.
The set of six classes are offered in a social and interactive setting.
The series is offered without charge for Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries. For others, the total cost for the five classes plus the follow-up class is at a special rate of $40 for an individual or $55 for a family registration. The fee includes all educational materials, lab tests and foods served, with scholarships available.
The focus of these classes is on making the lifestyle changes that will give the biggest bang for the buck — weeding out details that confuse or are of limited benefit in diabetes control. Lifestyle change offers the chance to decrease blood sugar and insulin resistance, making the most of the body's remaining insulin production for living a healthy life.
Each participant will receive a blood test to measure recent blood sugar levels, recipes, an exercise DVD, educational materials, pedometers, stretch bands and other items. Each class offers food demonstrations, mild physical activity and class discussion.
The instructor for the course will be Rayna Cooper, a registered dietitian and educator for Penn State Extension.
Reservations for the class and fee payment (if applicable) must be completed by March 10, though class additions may be made through the second week, space available.
For information or to register for these Gettysburg classes, contact the Adams County Extension office at 717-334-6271 or register online, listed by date of first class, at http://extension.psu.edu/diabetes/events.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of the benefits that made it cost-effective for me to go with the real healthcare (HSA) plan rather than the phony (HRA) plan is that my company is now covering "preventative" medicines at $0 copay. The formulary for these, as stated by CVS/Caremark (my pharmacy benefits provider), covers all test strips, lancets, and control solutions. I dutifully get my doctor to write up prescriptions for all of my testing needs, submit...
