Using the power of knowledge to fight diabetes
While early detection and medical treatments are important factors in providing care for diabetes, we are firm believers that knowledge is also an effective tool. We offer a variety of programs and classes that can help you effectively self-manage diabetes and reduce its impact on your life. The programs we provide include:
- Diabetes self-management program – This program is designed to teach you everything you need to know to live with diabetes. This course covers important basics like controlling your blood sugars, how to use a blood glucose monitor, carbohydrate counting and how to eat healthy. It is broken down into three parts: the basics of diabetes, living with diabetes, and a three-month follow-up.
- Gestational diabetes management – If you are pregnant and living with diabetes, this course will teach you how to monitor your glucose levels and plan meals to ensure you deliver a healthy baby.
- Diabetes support groups – We understand that living with diabetes can be difficult; that is why we offer diabetes support groups to help you through it.
- Insulin pump instruction – If you need to learn the skills necessary to wear an insulin pump, this training program is ideal for you. We will help you find the correct pump for your needs and teach you how to operate the pump and monitor your glucose levels.
Treating and preventing diabetes
Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, eating a healthy diet and reducing stress are important when it comes to treating and preventing diabetes; we will give you the tools you need to successfully make these lifestyle changes. We also help identify risk factors for diabetes and conduct diabetes screenings if you are at risk of developing the disease.
