Diabetes affects millions of Americans and when left untreated can lead to heart disease and stroke, damage kidneys and nerves, and affect eyesight, circulation and healing capacity. Fremont Health’s diabetes education programs can help you learn how to control the disease and lead a healthier, happier life.
Fremont Health’s Diabetes Self-Management class is a two-session program that will equip you with skills and knowledge to successfully manage your diabetes. It covers every aspect of diabetes management — meal planning, medication, blood glucose monitoring, exercise, prevention of complications, and coping strategies — and is taught by a diabetes educator, a registered dietitian, a registered pharmacist, and a physical therapist.
Diabetes Self-Management is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 6 and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 13. Classes are held on the third floor of Fremont Health’s Health Park Plaza, located at 450 E. 23rd St.
Registration and physician referral is required. This class is covered by Medicare and most private insurance. Lunch is provided. Call 402-727-3882 to register.
