Diabetes Education Program
Diabetes education can help people with diabetes gain the knowledge and problem-solving skills needed to improve their health and lead normal lives. Improving blood glucose or sugar levels will prevent a person from developing the complications of diabetes.
The Sumner Diabetes Program is taught by a registered nurse and registered dietitian. Topics discussed include healthy eating for diabetes, reducing complications, taking medication, monitoring blood sugar, reading labels and more.
Nutrition Education Program
Healthy eating plays a major role in managing many health conditions. A registered dietitian can help one develop an eating plan that best meets their nutrition needs.
A doctor order is required for diabetes and nutrition education. For more information about the program, please call (615) 328-6190 and we will be glad to assist you.
