Diabetic Group Classes

Wayne HealthCare Diabetes Self-Management Education Program is looking for individuals who are interesting in learning ways to help manage their diabetes. A four week interactive class will be starting in October, which will discuss many aspects of diabetes management.

The classes will discuss facts associated with diabetes and strategies to control blood sugar. We will talk about the progression of diabetes over time. We will talk about healthy eating to control blood sugar and overall health. We will review the importance of monitoring our blood sugar and how to use the results that you obtain to help improve blood sugar. We will focus on causes of low and high blood sugar. We will learn how to properly treat low blood sugar and ways to lower blood sugar when it is elevated.

The classes will also focus on the importance of exercise in blood sugar management. We will discuss how to incorporate physical activity into our daily lives and strategies to help you stay active. The different diabetic medications can be very confusing, so we will talk about how different medications work on the body to help manage your blood sugar. We will also talk about ways to reduce the risk of complications.

The series of diabetes classes will be offered on Wednesday October 6, 13, 20, and 27, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Wayne HealthCare. If you are unable to attend these classes, the November classes will be held on Monday afternoons.

The cost to attend is $10 per class. Registration is required so please contact the Certified Diabetes Educator at 937-547-5750.

The Wayne HealthCare Diabetes Self Management Education Program would like to be part of your support system. We are an accredited program through the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
