Having diabetes means there is too much sugar (glucose) in your blood. This happens when your body does not make working insulin to keep blood sugar in normal balance.
Taking care of diabetes means choosing healthy foods, exercise and sometimes taking medicine.
Our outpatient diabetes education programs provide comprehensive and educational support for patients and their families. From diet and exercise information to medication and glucose monitoring, our specially trained health professionals partner with patients to help them learn to self-manage their diabetes and decrease the risk of future complications.
Our programs have received recognition from the American Diabetes Association, the gold standard of care.
In addition, small group classes and a support group facilitated by our specially trained diabetes educators, provides an opportunity to learn and share with others living with diabetes.
