Diabetes Self-Management Education

Diabetes is a serious disease with potentially life-threatening consequences. Proper nutrition, physical activity, regular visits to your doctor, and medication can help you control your blood sugar level. If you have just been told you have diabetes; your treatment plan has changed; you are not meeting your diabetes targets, or are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, you will benefit by taking a self-management education class.

Diabetes education can help you learn to monitor blood sugar levels correctly, avoid highs and lows, and plan your meals and snacks.
