According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes affects more than 25 million people in the United States. Diabetes affects how the body controls blood glucose (or blood sugar). Diabetes is classified as chronic conditions, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and reversible conditions, gestational diabetes and prediabetes.
At Western Arizona Regional Medical Center, the diabetic education program is designed to help you better manage diabetes. We offer information about living with diabetes, including managing medications, increasing physical activity, performing blood glucose testing, taking preventative measures and working to develop better nutrition.
In order to participate in our diabetes education program, you will need a physician's referral and must also meet with one of our dietitians to set goals before the program begins.
