Diabetes Management Program

Helping you control your diabetes before it controls you

Jewish Diabetes Care’s highly qualified staff of diabetes educators is committed to helping diabetes sufferers and their families learn how to successfully manage their condition in order to live more healthy and productive lives.

Diabetes educators are nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, doctors, exercise physiologists and social workers that specialize in the care and education of individuals with diabetes. Whether you have just been diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for many years, a diabetes educator can help you master the ins and outs of managing diabetes.

Diabetes management and education sessions for you and your family focus on all aspects of diabetes and its impact on your lifestyle. The management program includes:

Small Group Classes

A series of four classes will focus on the importance of managing your disease, including healthy food choices, exercise, the ins-and-outs of medications and how to manage sugar and blood pressure using the latest technology. Classes are offered at Sts. Mary’s & Elizabeth Hospital and Jewish Hospital Medical Center Northeast. For a detailed class agenda, click here.

Personal Dietician Counseling

Appropriate for individuals with special needs, one-on-one counseling sessions center on consultations with certified diabetes educators, including a registered nurse and a dietician, offering a more personalized, nutritional approach to your diabetes care. Classes are available at various Jewish Physician Group locations throughout Kentuckiana.

How to Get Started
