Diabetes education can help people with diabetes gain the knowledge and problem-solving skills needed to improve their health and lead normal lives. Improving blood glucose or sugar levels will prevent a person from developing the complications of diabetes.
The Riverview Diabetes Program is taught by a Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian. Topics discussed include healthy eating for diabetes, reducing complications, taking medication, monitoring blood sugar, reading labels and more.
Digestive discomforts like heartburn, stomach upset, acid reflux and painful gas could be symptoms of serious medical problems. If you have questions about your digestive health, but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a digestive health assessment and learn more about conditions you may have.
A doctor’s order is required for the diabetes education program. For more information about the program, please call (615) 735-5320 and we will be glad to assist you.
At Riverview Regional Medical Center we are committed to educating the public about diabetes and helping support those living with the disease.
Each month we offer a free Diabetic Support Group class open to the public. Everyone is welcome and we encourage you to bring a support person with you.
Healthy eating plays a major role in managing many health conditions. A registered dietitian can help one develop an eating plan that best meets their nutrition needs.
