Diabetes Care Center and Nutrition Services
Diabetes is on the rise in the United States, where 25.8 million people have the disease (27% aren't aware they have it) and more than 79 million have pre-diabetes. Diabetes can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, stroke and even blindness. It's important to know your risks and take control of your health. Diabetes Education and Nutrition Services is here to help.
We give you the tools you need to control your diabetes - so it doesn't control you. Knowing your blood sugar levels is just the start. We help you thrive with effective diet, exercise, medication and lifestyle counseling.
To get started with our diabetes education program, you need a doctor's referral. For more information, talk to your primary care doctor or call us at (541) 789-5906.
Our team of experts includes certified diabetes educators, registered nurses and registered dietitians, and well as a medical social worker and physical therapist. We work closely with your primary care doctor (or obstetrician, for cases of gestational diabetes, or diabetes with pregnancy).
In our group classes, you can connect with others experiencing similar issues. We also offer ongoing monthly support groups, allowing you to stay current with your diabetes care long after your initial meetings with us are complete.
I came to the Diabetes Care Center to get better control of my diabetes. The personal link that has grown between me and the educators is what I value most. In spite of my poor control, they continue to assist me, to see what I can't feel... that I have to have better glucose control to keep my good health and prevent the complications of diabetes. They work with me to overcome the obstacles that come along. My new insulin pump has given me flexibility that I enjoy. Without the help of the Diabetes Care Center staff, having an insulin pump might not have been possible.
