Diabetes Education Program

If you're living with diabetes, you're not alone ... more than 25 million people in the U.S. are dealing with it.

If you've been diagnosed with diabetes, it's important to know the facts about diabetes and your management of it. Because diabetes is a serious condition that is not curable, it's important that you learn as much as you can about the disease and work with your diabetes management team to manage the disease and get the support you need to stay strong.

You can live an active, full life with diabetes, but you must be motivated and willing to manage it diligently and correctly. Failure to manage your diabetes can lead to disease-related complications such as problems with your eyes, kidneys or nerves; or heart attacks, strokes and amputations. These complications are permanent and irreversible, but with proper diabetes management, you may be able to limit these complications or prevent them altogether. The video below offers important points about insulin, diet and exercise, and life management.
