Take Charge of Your Diabetes

Dealing with your diabetes can feel overwhelming, but with good management, people can lead long and healthy lives. Every individual has unique needs, but it’s important to follow a regular care schedule with screenings and check-ins with your care team. Work with your doctor and Diabetes Care and Education Specialist to develop a plan and monitor your progress.

It’s never too early or too late to start making lifestyle changes to support your health.


Education and information are powerful tools that can help you prevent diabetes or live well with diabetes.

Work alongside a Diabetes Care and Education Specialist to develop a care plan that meets your unique needs. Diabetes education isn’t meant to be done once. It can – and should – be part of your regular care schedule. Most insurances now cover diabetes education at four key times:

  1. At diagnosis
  2. Annually and/or when not meeting treatment targets
  3. When complicating factors develop
  4. 4. During transitions in life and care
