Diabetes is a chronic health condition. People with diabetes must make lifestyle changes and learn self-management skills to avoid or delay complications that may arise from diabetes. That’s why East Houston Regional Medical Center has made education the cornerstone of the Diabetes Management program.
Services at the Diabetes Clinic include:
- Individual or group classes on nutrition, blood glucose monitoring, medications, problem solving, risk reduction, prevention of long-term complications, coping, and exercise.
- Personal goals, designed specifically for you.
- Free, monthly support group open to program participants and the public.
With a referral from a doctor, any adult with Type I, Type II or gestational diabetes may qualify for the program. Referring physicians provide information and guidance about the patient’s needs, and works closely with our Diabetes Management program.
