Outpatient Diabetes and Nutrition Services

Educational services are available for patients with Type I, Type II, or Gestational Diabetes. The program is provided for patients with newly diagnosed or uncontrolled diabetes. As a part of the diabetes education, nutritional instruction will also be provided.

An individual education plan is developed with the patient and diabetes education team – including a nurse certified diabetes educator and registered and licensed dietitian. This team works with the patient and physician to set behavior goals and treat the disease. The educator communicates and coordinates care with the physician as needed. Patients are typically scheduled for three visits, the first with the dietitian and the last two with the diabetes educator.
