The Diabetes Self- Management program contains six 2.5-hour sessions designed to teach tips to keep diabetes under control and improve quality of life. The workshop is available to individuals with diabetes and their caregivers.
Subjects covered in the workshop include:
- Techniques to deal with the symptoms of diabetes, fatigue, pain, hyper/hypoglycemia, stress, and emotional problems such as depression, anger, fear and frustration
- Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength and endurance
- Healthy eating
- Appropriate use of medication
- Working more effectively with health care providers. Participants will make weekly action plans, share experiences, and support each other.
These classes are not a substitute for diagnosis, treatment, or health management by a physician or other health care provider; however, these classes do extend education and support received through providers and reinforces the importance of lifestyle in disease management.
