When your blood glucose levels are above normal and your body doesn’t produce insulin (or enough insulin), you are considered diabetic. When you found out about your diagnosis of diabetes, you probably had a lot of questions. Some common questions we hear are:
- How will I obtain a glucose meter?
- What is a good blood sugar range?
- What should I eat to control my blood sugar?
- How will physical activity affect my blood sugar?
We know that patients who understand diabetes enjoy a better quality of life than those who are unclear on how to handle the disease. That’s why we offer educational services to help you know how to manage your diabetes. We want you to feel knowledgeable and in control of your health. Our education services can explain how to live your life fully with diabetes. We can assist with a plan for your treatment, help you understand medication, and show you how to monitor your blood glucose levels. We can also help you learn how to plan meals and exercise in a way that keeps your diabetes under control—and allows you to enjoy your life without worrying about your health.
Our diabetes education programs are recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). This recognition means that our curricula and teaching methods have met the guidelines and approval of the ADA.
