Healthy changes that can last a lifetime

Are you ready to take charge of your health? With our support, we don't just tell you what to do — we work with you to make it happen.

Together, we'll develop a lifestyle action plan to manage your diabetes that aligns with what you like to eat and how you want to exercise. We then provide the support and encouragement to help you stick with the plan and make it a natural part of your lifestyle.

One of the best benefits you can expect from this program is a diet plan tailored to your tastes. Modifying your eating habits starts by focusing on foods that address your medical condition, lifestyle and preferences.

As your eating habits improve, we'll then expand your plan to include exercise. Getting active can help you lose weight while also improving your blood sugar and insulin levels.

You'll meet with your coach weekly to review progress and address ongoing challenges during the program's first few months.

Diabetes self-management education

  2. Healthy coping
  3. Healthy eating
  4. Monitoring
  5. Problem-solving
  6. Reducing risks
  7. Taking medication

Diabetes self-management education isn't just a box to check, but a lifestyle to embrace. We understand that many changes all at once can feel overwhelming. That's why your plan will be uniquely you — designed with tools and support to empower you to live and thrive with your condition.
