Nurse with patient

The Diabetes Management Center offers evaluation, individual and group education and support for people living with diabetes. The center strives to empower patients to successfully manage their diabetes on a daily basis.

Because successful diabetes management depends largely on the patient, education is extremely important. Patients learn about the disease itself, their prescribed medication, nutrition, activity and personal goal setting. Education regarding early recognition of signs and symptoms and treatment of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) are included.

Education Offerings

The Diabetes Management Center offers diabetes education in both individual and group settings. Diabetes Dynamics classes, Diabetes Basics, and community health fairs are available to the community. Diabetes Dynamics is a two-class course that meets once a month that teaches the basics of diabetes management, nutrition, foot care, exercise goal setting and motivation.

For more information on these educational offerings, call (504) 503-4165.
