Diabetes Education

Take Our Survey
Diabetes is a lifelong condition affecting your body's ability to use glucose (sugar) obtained from foods. Glucose is the body's source of fuel. A person's risk for diabetes goes up as they get older, gain weight or become less active. It is more common in individuals of African American, Asian American, Hispanic or Pacific Island ethnic backgrounds as well as those with a family history of diabetes.

It can be a silent disease. Left untreated, high blood sugar can cause serious health issues. A person can have problems with blood sugar for months or even years and be unaware. Additionally, a pre-diabetes condition can exist where mild elevations in blood sugar may also be impacting health.

Living with diabetes can be a challenge. It is important for those with diabetes to have education and support to create a treatment plan to control their diabetes and decrease the risk of other serious health issues. The St. Luke's Diabetes Education Program is certified by the American Diabetes Association. Our Diabetes Team consists of your physician, certified diabetes educators (nurse and dietitian) and exercise physiologists.

Our certified diabetes educators will assist you in developing self-management plans and behaviors related to medications, diet, glucose monitoring, exercise and activity, sick day plans, problem solving for high and low blood sugars, carbohydrate counting and behavior modification. In addition, our exercise physiologists are also available to develop individualized exercise programs using aerobic and strengthening equipment at the St. Luke's Fitness Center.
