Diabetes Education

Includes Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, and Gestational Diabetes

This program is designed for individuals with diabetes. Diabetes Self-Management Training is a series of classes that is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of diabetes. We perform an initial assessment, followed by three classes and one or two follow-up appointments.

Class 1 | Overview of Diabetes and Monitoring | What is diabetes, types of diabetes, risk factors for diabetes, management goals, and monitoring.

Class 2 | Nutrition and Diabetes | How foods affect blood sugar, portion control, and carbohydrate counting. You will also receive a personalized meal plan!

Class 3 | Exercise, Medication, Reducing Risks, Coping, and Problem-Solving | We also review meal planning with an emphasis on dining out.
