Diabetic Education

TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR DIABETES.

REDUCE COMPLICATIONS.

IMRPOVE YOUR LIFE.

We know that living with diabetes requires the need to make certain life adjustments. With the right tools at your fingertips, diabetes does not have to control you. It is a manageable condition.

Program

The program at Windom Area Hospital is accredited by the American Diabetes Education and focuses on providing you the knowledge and skills necessary to manage and take charge of your diabetes.

You Team

Your diabetes education team consists of a multidisciplinary group of certified health professionals:

  • Registered Dietician

  • Diabetic Educator

  • Registered Nurses

Together we will work with your health team to coordinate diabetes care that is just right for you, including glucose monitoring, PO medication, insulin therapy, insulin pump therapy and CGM (continuous glucose monitoring).

Your Care

We provide individual sessions that include behavior modification and goal setting towards:

  • Understanding diabetes by type

  • Eating healthy

  • Being active

  • Taking medications

  • Solving problems

  • Coping in a healthy way

  • Reducing risk

  • Glucose monitoring

  • Glucose graphing and data reporting

These sessions also provide you with community resource information and additional support that you will find helpful.

Insurance

Diabetes education is frequently paid for, either partially of in full, by most insurance plans. Check with your insurance provider for specific benefit information. A physician referral is required by all insurers.

Some insurance companies allow for annual education on diabetes care. It is recommended to ask about additional education when you visit your doctor or other health care clinician during your regular check-ups.
