Diabetes Education Overview
Improving Quality of Life Through Education
Proper diabetes management can help prevent complications, such as kidney and eye disease, circulation problems, and may also reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke. Nationally recognized by the American Diabetes Association, Cascade Health diabetes education program helps those living with diabetes understand all aspects of the disease and how to manage it.
Learn how to prevent, delay, or manage diabetes and reduce the risk of complications. By learning self-management skills, you can gain a better grasp on how the body reacts to food, exercise, diabetes medication, and insulin. Knowing how these factors affect the body helps gain control of blood glucose and develop a healthier life.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t begin to say that enough. When I first was diagnosed, I felt hopeless and thought my life was going to end. Instead, I’ve learned to be positive. I felt supported with the education classes and this program. I can do this. I feel empowered. Again, thank you!”
