Millions of Americans live with diabetes. Yet, there are steps we can take to prevent diabetes or control it more effectively. At Sentara, we want to help you live happier, free of diabetes or without major complications from the disease. It is possible!

Sentara offers many locations and services to help patients with diabetes navigate their care.

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.

Our diabetes education programs assist those recently diagnosed with the disease, as well as those dealing with long-term diabetes management. Our 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 Diabetes Education Accreditation Program.
