Figuring out how to manage your diabetes isn't easy. You have to monitor your blood sugar, stay healthy, and figure out what kind of diet works best for your unique needs. Our Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) give you the kind of special attention you need to manage your diabetes.
Why See an Expert in Diabetes Management?
Working one-on-one with a diabetes specialist gives you:
- Time. We spend 30 minutes to an hour in one-on-one visits with you — the kind of time most doctors can't give.
- Customized support. Let us help you identify your goals and outline your plans to achieve them.
- A chance to ask all questions and feel confident about your self-care.
