Our on staff dietitian will help you select the right food and meal options for your individual needs.
We provide comprehensive diabetes self-management education in a group setting taught by a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist and a Registered Dietitian. This program is by referral only.
A 1-hour initial assessment by a RN, CDCES is the first step in your diabetes education program journey. In this session, your forms will be reviewed, along with your health, nutrition and medication history. Your diabetes knowledge will be assessed, and an education plan will be developed. You will then schedule your group education.
You will spend 3 hours with the RN, CDCES and an additional 3 hours with the RD. These 3-hour sessions can be done on the same day or can be done on different days, depending on your individual needs. We will discuss what works best for you when your appointment is scheduled.
During these classes you will learn the basics of diabetes education. Some of the topics will include healthy eating, physical exercise, diabetes treatment options, monitoring your blood sugar, treating hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia, medication usage, preventing complications, healthy coping and problem solving.
After completion of class, you will be scheduled a 4 week follow up appointment. At this appointment, you and the educator will review the information that was taught in class, discuss previous goals and any questions/concerns that you may have. You will work with your educator to develop new goals and a plan for future appointments.
This class can also be taught on an individual basis with a referral from the physician managing your diabetes that states why an individual session is necessary.
Insulin training will also be done on an individual basis.
