Diabetes management program can help you stay active and healthy

The Diabetes Management Program is designed to help you take charge of your health by learning about diabetes and the importance of controlling your blood sugar (glucose) level. Our goal is to keep you as healthy and active as possible and minimize potential complications.

Our program is designed for individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and includes:

  • Individual consultations with a diabetes nurse specialist or diabetes dietician specialist
  • A 10-hour course in diabetes management (both day and evening classes are offered)
  • Support groups and other resources 

A 10-year research study completed by the National Institutes of Health proved that good blood-glucose control prevents or delays many of the complications of diabetes.

Support and skills you need to manage your diabetes

Our individual consults and group classes are conducted by nurses and dieticians who are certified diabetes educators. Specific topics include:

  • What is diabetes?
  • Measuring your blood sugar
  • Meal planning
  • Using exercise to control your diabetes
  • Medication management
  • Stress management
  • Avoiding complications

Controlling diabetes is ultimately your responsibility. We can provide you with the information and skills necessary to take on that responsibility with confidence. We've helped countless individuals with diabetes live healthy, active, productive lives.
