Diabetes Education & Support

More than 37 million adults and children in the United States have diabetes, yet nearly a quarter of those individuals remain undiagnosed. If left unchecked, diabetes can lead to blindness, kidney disease, and nerve damage and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Those with diabetes can take control of the disease and live a full, happy life. Atlantic General's Diabetes Self Management Education and Support services can provide the proper tools to do so.

We provide comprehensive self management education and support for people with diabetes and their families, through group and individual educational sessions. Our program has received the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) Education Recognition Certificate for quality self management education.

In addition to individualized, custom diabetes management plans and detailed personal goals, we provide information about:

  • Glucose self-monitoring
  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise
  • Diabetes medicine
  • Acute complications including high and low blood sugars
  • Chronic complications such as eye, kidney, nerve and cardiovascular disorders
  • Emotional considerations – coping and problem-solving strategies
  • Foot care
  • Guidelines for medical check-ups

The services are facilitated and taught by Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists who coordinates care for their patients with referring providers, including Atlantic General Health System's endocrinology specialist Patricia Morales, CRNP.

For more information about the services offered through this program or how to obtain the necessary referral from your physician, please call us at (410) 208-9761.
