Diabetes Education Services
Committed to helping patients manage their condition
to improve their health
Diabetes occurs when the body can’t make energy from food, and sugar stays in the blood instead of going into the cells. Type 1 and type 2 are the most common forms of diabetes, followed by gestational diabetes, which affects many women while pregnant.
There is no cure for diabetes, but with careful lifestyle choices, people with diabetes can live long and productive lives. Good self-management of blood sugar and heart disease through food, medication, exercise, and stress management can significantly reduce or even prevent the complications of diabetes.
St. Luke's Jerome offers a wide variety of award-winning Certified Diabetes Educator services covering:
- Type 1 and type 2 diabetes
- Diabetes during pregnancy
- Diabetes self-management training
- Meal planning
- Insulin pump therapy
