Our Diabetes Management Program Is Designed To Help Patients Control Their Disease And Decrease The Risk Of Long-Term Complications

Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to heart attacks, kidney failure, amputations, blindness and possible death. These conditions can be postponed or prevented through medical care, exercise, diet and improved self-monitoring of glucose levels. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about medications, what role diet plays in the management of their diabetes, how exercise can enhance their quality of life, how to monitor blood sugar levels and use the information to improve their diabetes control.

Activities and services include:

  • Group activities and individualized sessions
  • Monitoring glucose levels and goal ranges
  • Exercise consultations
  • Nutrition consultations
  • Education on medication and insulin care
  • Cooking classes and menu planning

The Diabetes Support Group typically meets the last Friday of each month from 10 am. – 11 a.m. in the McLeod Seacoast Café. These meetings are free and open to the public. Meeting activities include:

  • Grocery store tour and shopping guidance
  • Monthly education including physician speakers
  • A wide variety of free screenings
