Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

The Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) program is offered in both group and one-on-one settings for people diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The program provides comprehensive diabetes education for mastering the basic self-care skills for your lifelong journey, covering:

  • Blood glucose monitoring
  • Medical nutrition therapy
  • Flexibility & coping strategies!
  • Reducing the risk of complications
  • Exercise & lifestyle coaching

The program consists of two individual appointments and five classes over a three month time frame. All programs are led by our team of certified diabetes educators (a registered nurse and/or a registered dietitian).

Most insurance companies, including Medicare, cover diabetes education with a referral from your physician. We can review the specifics of your insurance or other payment options when you make your DSME appointment.
