Diabetes is a condition where a person’s body struggles to produce or respond to the hormone insulin.
Our diabetes education course provides individuals with the opportunity to get an in-depth look at barriers you may face. Another statistic which stands out for our region is race. With much higher-than-average rates of diabetes, American Indian (18%) and Hispanic (13%) populations are especially in need of help.
However, the steps to controlling and learning to live life with diabetes is the same regardless of race. Although diabetes is not specifically a lifestyle disease, there are lifestyle changes one can make to control it. And as normal, making a lifestyle change is not easy.
To help, Kymera Independent Physicians have developed a program designed to help patients gain a deeper understanding of their disease in order to better manage it. Extensive by necessity, simple by design, this course provides both the framework for success and the process. Kymera medical staff provide the guidance and encouragement.
The Kymera Diabetes Education course covers topics like:
- How does diabetes medicine work?
- What foods are good to consume?
- How to plan budget-friendly meals?
- What is the best glucose monitoring device for you? How do you use it?
- What resources are available to help track progress and provide reminders?
- Tips to cope with stress and solve problems.
