Diabetes is a chronic condition that has to be carefully managed. This common disease can increase the risk of heart disease, nerve damage and other serious health problems when blood sugar levels are not kept within a healthy range. At KentuckyCare, we are committed to making sure that patients have access to the treatment and resources needed to keep diabetes under control.
Our diabetes management program includes the following:
- Individualized assessment
- Nutrition education and meal planning with assistance from a registered dietitian
- Education on diabetes in a classroom setting or with one-on-one instruction
- Support group meetings
- Cooking classes
- Physical fitness classes
Our diabetes treatment plan is recognized by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). Taking this program provides you with the tools, support and resources you need in order to successfully manage diabetes and lower your risk of health complications.
