Controlling blood sugar through meal planning, getting proper exercise and possibly taking medication are essential in any diabetes management plan. Patients can receive individual sessions or join group diabetes classes and support groups for advice on these topics and many others as they build their diabetes management plan.
Diabetes education programs at a variety of Sentara locations assist those recently diagnosed with the disease, as well as those dealing with long-term diabetes management. Experts help patients develop the knowledge and skills needed to prevent complications and create healthy habits.
Our programs meet the national recognition standards of the American Association of Diabetes Educators.
