The Diabetes Education
Services of Lake Charles Memorial Hospital offers people with diabetes the
learning opportunities and support they need to get healthy and avoid the
serious complications that can be associated with the disease in Southwest Louisiana.
In addition to learning how
to monitor your glucose, the staff, which includes a
certified diabetes educator, nurse educator and registered dietician, can adapt
a meal plan to your own lifestyle, develop an exercise program tailored to your
individual needs, discuss possible complications of diabetes, and explain how
to reduce your risk of developing these complications.
The management of diabetes
is a team effort involving you, your family, your physician and Memorial
Hospital Diabetes Education.
Diabetes Education also
hosts a free support group twice a month that is open to the community.
