Diabetes affects millions of Americans and when left untreated can lead to heart disease and stroke, damage kidneys and nerves, and affect eyesight, circulation and healing capacity. Fremont Health’s Diabetes education programs can help you learn how to control the disease and lead a healthier, happier life.

The “Taking Charge” Diabetes Self-Management class is a one-day course taught by a diabetes educator, registered dietitian, registered pharmacist and physical therapist. They have years of experience helping people with diabetes manage their disease. This course covers every aspect of diabetes management, including meal planning, medication, blood glucose monitoring, exercise, prevention of complications, and coping strategies.

“Taking Charge” is scheduled for Wednesday, February 17, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Registration and physician referral is required. This class is covered by Medicare and most private insurance. Lunch is provided.

In addition, Fremont Health’s “Living Well with Diabetes” support group, a valuable source for on-going education for individuals with diabetes is scheduled for Tuesday, February 23, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. This class is free and registration is not required.
