Did you know that more than 30 million Americans have diabetes…..that for many Rhode Islanders, diabetes is a fact of everyday life? An even greater number have pre-diabetes, literally a harbinger or wake-up call alerting us that full blown diabetes is looming on the horizon. It’s not too late to turn things around. We can help!
At HealthWayRI our Diabetes Educators can provide the skills and education you need to get control of your diabetes, or prevent pre-diabetes from turning into diabetes. Our services include:
- Consultations for newly diagnosed patients
- Nutrition and weight management plans
- On-site blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c testing
- Medication management
- Getting started with insulin
- Glucometer instruction
- Diabetes Outpatient Education
And if you also bear the burden of being overweight, our low carbohydrate meals plans might just be what you’ve been looking for. For those with diabetes or pre-diabetes, obesity is enemy number one! It makes everything worse, from glucose readings to the risk of future complications. Isn’t it time to take control?
We can show you how to safely reduce your carbohydrates, lose weight, and even reduce your medication or insulin requirements – all this without going hungry or counting calories – and provided under a physician’s supervision. It’s our job! It’s what we do!
