Diabetes Education Program
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.
- Daytime and evening classes are available. This is a one day class.
- A support person is encouraged to attend the class with you.
- Class size is small and in a relaxed environment.
- Instructors are certified by the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators.
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.
Check your gut.
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.
