Diabetes Management

Center for Diabetes Management

Recognizing that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for diabetes management, the Center’s team of highly trained dietitians and nurses work with each patient to tailor a program that includes healthy eating, physical activity, self blood glucose monitoring, taking medications, problem solving, healthy coping and reducing risks to fit his or her lifestyle. The Hillcrest Diabetes Center meets all standards and requirements of the American Association of Diabetes Educators and is accredited through 2021. Group classes or one-on-one support allow patients to learn the skills they need to take control of their diabetes, lower their A1c and live healthier lives.

What to do if you have diabetes

If you have diabetes and want education and training, here are the steps to get you in with our team of certified diabetes educators:
 

Two simple steps to schedule an appointment or a class

  1. A physician referral is required. Ask your physician to fax or mail a referral to the Center.
  2. After we receive your physician’s referral our staff will confirm your insurance benefits (Many insurance plans and Medicare cover these services for their members), then call you to schedule an appointment.

Classes

For people with Type 2 Diabetes, we have the Basics Class. Our Basics Class series includes two classes that are one week apart. Class 1 is 4 hours long and includes an educational lunch and Class 2 is 3.5 hours long. Both classes are taught by a nurse and a dietitian that make learning easy to understand, fun and interactive.
 
For people with Pre-Diabetes, we have the Diabetes Prevention Class. This class is offered twice a month and is a 1-hour class taught by a dietitian. This class focuses on healthy eating, portion control, the benefits of weight loss (if needed) and physical activity, and the Diabetes Prevention Study.
