Diabetes Program Description

PacMed's Diabetes Program

Individual AssessmentMeet with one of our diabetes educators to establish your individual educational needs. Call to schedule before the first class at your clinic.

Diabetes: The Real DealLearn survival skills for managing diabetes: how to monitor blood sugar, how to treat highs and lows, and how to help prevent complications. We’ll also go over why medications are prescribed and the basic physiology of diabetes.

The Power of FoodLearn the basic principles of nutrition and how food can help manage diabetes. We’ll review carb counting and label reading as well as healthy food choices and basic meal planning.

Whole Body Health + Food DemoLearn non-food ways to manage diabetes including physical activity and emotional well-being. We’ll also build on the nutrition principles presented in the previous class with a food demo, where we’ll be creating healthy, balanced (and tasty) meals!
