Diabetes Health Services in The Dalles
Comprehensive Diabetes Education Services
Diabetes, while serious, is a very manageable condition. You will be required
to make some lifestyle changes in order to avoid complications, but otherwise
you should be able to continue enjoying your life to the fullest. Instilling
these habits can be the most difficult part of living with diabetes, but
the Mid-Columbia Medical Center team is here to help.
We offer a comprehensive diabetes education program that has been officially
reviewed and approved by the American Diabetes Association. This structured
program teaches patients how to keep diabetes under control while living
their lives with as little interruption as possible. By drilling in the
essentials of diabetes care: insulin injections, dietary restrictions,
checking glucose levels; you can develop a solid understanding of how
diabetes works and make informed decisions without having to worry how
it will impact your condition.
Our diabetes services include:
- One-on-one appointments
- Clinical testing to diagnose diabetes
- Medical nutrition therapy
- Outpatient educational courses
- Training on how to read and manage glucose levels
- And more
We Are Committed to Helping Patients Live Happy & Healthy
Managing diabetes is a lifetime struggle, but one that becomes easier as
you adjust to the lifestyle. We can educate you on proper exercise, diet,
and medication habits that will help you avoid any serious complications.
When working with our team, you may consult with an endocrinologist, nutritionist,
and other medical professionals who have training and experience treating
the various areas of the body that could feel the side effects of diabetes.
With diligent care and thorough education, there is no reason for diabetes
to cause you any significant problems. Reach out to MCMC today if you
are interested in signing up for our diabetes education course!
