Need more information or assistance in managing your diabetes?

Diabetes Self Management Education at the MEND Center is certified by the American Diabetes Association and taught by Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE's). It is the "Gold Standard" for diabetes education with a proven track record of results. Many participants notice a significant change in their blood sugar levels after becoming more educated on how to properly manage their diabetes.

The clinical classes teach:

  • Basics for those with Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational diabetes
  • How to obtain and use a glucose monitor
  • How to use an insulin pump
  • How to count carbohydrates and what your goal should be
  • Managing sick days
  • Proper foot care and the importance of exercise and healthy eating

In addition, as members of your healthcare team, the CDE's are in close contact with your physician to discuss any relevant matter relating to diabetic care.
