Diabetes Management

Helping Patients & Their Families Keep Diabetes Under Control

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that requires keeping track of your blood sugar levels. This can seem like a difficult task at first, but after working with diabetes care professionals on management techniques, keeping diabetes under control will be second nature.

We provide diabetes management courses for Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is a temporary form of diabetes that can affect pregnant women.

Our experienced diabetes care team can help you with:

  • Information on the latest techniques in diabetes self-management
  • Nutrition and meal planning
  • Insulin management
  • Blood glucose monitoring
  • Families and diabetes support
  • Stress management
  • Exercise
  • Managing diabetes during illness
  • Preventing or delaying diabetes complications
  • Preventing, recognizing, and treating emergencies involving diabetes

Diabetes Educator

We have certified diabetes care and education specialists (CDCES) who specialize in diabetes self-management. They help assist people with diabetes, their loved ones, and anyone else involved in their care providing knowledge, skills, motivation, and confidence in managing their condition. They are happy to answer and address any questions or concerns that diabetes patients and others involved may have.

What to expect when working with a diabetes educator:

  • Assist patients in getting the supplies and meds needed that are covered by their insurance and teach them how to use these items.
  • Help the provider in assessing data and adjusting medications to improve blood glucose control.
  • Provide assistance to patients in creating meal plans that are healthy and sustainable for ongoing diabetes management.
  • Support patients in setting goals that will motivate them to improve diet and activity, as well the ongoing screening and monitoring of the disease itself to prevent complications.
  • Assist patients in finding the tools and resources needed for day to day management. Examples would be starting a patient on a personal continuous glucose monitoring system to ease the burden of testing multiple times a day or starting a patient on an insulin pump for an easier way to administer their insulin if appropriate.
