McCready Memorial Hospital will soon release the schedule for our next round of Diabetes Self Management Education classes. Sessions are normally held from 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. in the McCready Outpatient Center.
These American Diabetes Association-sanctioned classes are covered by most health insurance plans, including Medicare, but participants need a physician's prescription to enroll.
The "Diabetes Self Management Education" course shows diabetics the skills they need to manage the disease.
The four-week course covers how food, medications, exercise and emotions affect daily blood sugar levels. It is typically taught by a team of specially trained diabetes educators.
Participants will be helped to devise individual, personalized plans for self management.
