DIABETES EDUCATION* & CARE
At IEDHH, we have always strived to provide the best diabetes care for our patients. Now, we are proud to offer diabetes self-management education* as well.
Diabetes self-management education (DSME) is a process of providing the knowledge, skill, & ability for necessary diabetes self-care, taught by a diabetes health professional. The diabetes professional, usually a nurse or dietitian, will also provide ongoing support needed to successfully change behaviors to better manage your diabetes. DSME is designed to address the many factors that influence each person’s ability to manage diabetes, including cultural needs, physical limitations, financial status, medical history, family support, & others.There are many benefits to going through this type of diabetes education.
