According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes affects more than 25 million people in the United States. Diabetes affects how the body controls blood glucose (or blood sugar). Diabetes is classified as chronic conditions, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and reversible conditions, gestational diabetes and prediabetes.
At South Baldwin Regional Medical Center, the diabetic education program is designed to help you better manage diabetes. We offer information about living with diabetes, including managing medications, increasing physical activity, performing blood glucose testing, taking preventative measures and working to develop better nutrition.
Our Diabetic Education program is free and offered thru South Baldwin Regional Medical Center's community education series. The class helps patients make healthy decisions and take control of diabetes.
Group classes and individual consultations with our diabetes instructor and dietitian are also available. Classes are held in the Rehab Center across from the ER entrance at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center.
