Diabetes Self-Management Program
The Mount Carmel Diabetes Self-Management Program is a collection of classes, consultations and a support group that put patients in touch with the demands of their disease and people who can help them manage it.
The Diabetes Self-Management Program at Mount Carmel has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education. To learn more, call 614-546-4582. A physician referral is required.
Type 2 Basics Class
For those suffering from Type 2 diabetes, our three-session basics class provides information to help manage the disease with confidence. Classes are taught by Certified Diabetes Educators and are small enough to provide plenty of individual attention.
The first two sessions are held one week apart, and the final session is scheduled three to six months later. Both daytime and evening classes are offered, and support people are welcome to attend.
Injectable Medication Training
For those who use injectable medication for their diabetes, we've created a training program that covers everything about insulin, Byetta and Symlin therapy. Taught by Certified Diabetes Educators this training program is generally conducted one on one, and is an ideal way to learn the benefits and effects of medication and the importance of other aspects like timing, record keeping and site rotation.
Private consultations are available for diabetes patients with immediate or special needs. Appointments can be scheduled during normal business hours and cover many of the same topics as our Type II Basics class. Each session is designed specifically to meet the needs of the individual patient involved.
Diabetes Support Group
Mount Carmel offers a free diabetes support group to help patients cope with the challenges of managing their disease. The informal sessions provide patients with the chance to receive information about diabetes and diabetes care, learn from guest speakers and meet others confronting similar issues. A physician referral is not required, and friends and family are welcome.
