Diabetes Programs/Support Groups

Aria Health’s Diabetes Self-Management Program has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for quality self-management education. This multi-session, 10-hour program teaches you the importance of proper nutrition, exercise, and controlling your blood sugar to minimize diabetic complications.

A physician referral and pre-registration are required.

Follow-Up Classes

After completion of the Diabetes Self-Management Program, participants are encouraged to attend a follow-up class to review their progress, diabetes management skills, and the nutritional aspects of diabetes and heart health. Sessions are offered several times a year.

Individual Diabetes Counseling

Consultations regarding blood sugar monitoring, insulin injection instruction, medication, and gestational diabetes information can be made with a Registered Nurse certified in diabetes education. Sessions with a Registered Dietitian can be made to discuss meal planning, weight control, and dietary information.

Exercise Program

Aria offers on-site programs to educate patients about the benefits of exercise and adopting a regular fitness routine.
