There are many ways to take care of your diabetes and many “tools” you can use to improve your health and prevent diabetes problems. Information below is only a start - there is a lot more to know about diabetes. When you learn more about diabetes, it will be easier to take better care of yourself. The more you understand the more choices you have about when and what to eat, about exercise, and how to get help, and about how you want to live.
The outpatient classes at UofL Health Diabetes Care will provide you with the rest of the tools you need to control your diabetes. Ask your doctor about referring you for diabetes self-management education.
