Diabetes Education

Diabetes Self-Management Education Program:
If you are living with diabetes, you can feel confident in choosing Marlette Regional Hospital’s diabetes education program. Our team includes a registered nurse, who is also a certified diabetes care & education specialist and a licensed dietitian. Together, our educators will help you understand how to live with your condition and inspire you to make lifestyle changes that can improve your health.

Diabetes Program Information:
Once you make the decision to attend our program, you will receive a private appointment with one of our instructors. This time is used to discuss your individual concerns, lifestyle habits, personal health goals, and learning needs. The next step is to attend group classes. Each class is several hours in length and provides comprehensive coverage of diabetes topics, including understanding what diabetes is doing in the body, meal planning, understanding blood glucose numbers and patterns, physical activity, healthy coping, preventing complications, problems solving, & more. Our goal is to make you feel more empowered and confident in your ability to manage your lifestyle & improve your blood glucose levels and quality of life.

If you have already attended diabetes education,  you can return each year!         2 hours of education are available each calendar year. These hours can be used to cover whatever topics are most pressing to you. Education can be performed privately or in a group.
