What do you know about Diabetes?

As with most things, knowledge is power. Take a moment and look over the following articles written by our Diabetes Education Department. Inform yourself about the signs, symptoms and treatment of diabetes.

What is Diabetes? - Certified Diabetes Educator, Nancy Raymond, RN talks about the basics of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.

Carbohydrate Counting - Because carbohydrates affects our blood glucose levels, carbohydrate counting is a very important part of diabetes management.

Eating a Well-Balanced Diet -  Diabetics have to pay careful attention to their diet and the foods they eat. This is not a typical diet that involves avoiding certain foods; it is a way of eating that provides the most health benefits by including all of the different food categories.

Gestational Diabetes -  When a woman becomes "insulin resistant" during pregnancy because of an increased level of hormones, it's know as Gestational Diabetes.
