DIABETES CARE MANAGEMENT
Our Diabetes Care Management program is certified by the American Diabetes
Association and can help you to manage your diabetes. Controlling your
diabetes is always important, but when you have a developed wound it’s
critical to ensure optimal wound healing.
Our Diabetes Care Program offers classes and personal consultation designed
to meet your needs. Classes are taught by Certified Diabetes Educators
— nurses and dietitians — who use a combination of teaching,
counseling and lifestyle changes to help you learn to manage diabetes
and enhance your quality of life. Most insurance plans will cover all
or part of these programs. Call our Diabetes Care Management department
at 530-244-5455 for more information.
