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. Through these programs, people learn how to manage their diet and life style to reduce the effects of diabetes.
