Diabetes Education

At Carson Tahoe, we believe that diabetes education and self-management training are integral components of diabetes care.  Carson Tahoe’s objective is to help you sustain your health while lowering your risk of diabetes related complications.  Our program, certified by the American Diabetes Association, will provide you with your own diabetes team of professionals including nurse educators and registered dietitians to help you TAKE CHARGE of your diabetes.

Our diabetes program helps you acquire the knowledge and skills to successfully manage diabetes on a daily basis.

Through private appointments and group classes, your diabetes team will cover the topics that matter most to you including:

•  Avoiding complications

•  “Carb counting”

•  Nutrition guidelines

•  Shopping for groceries

•  Reading labels

•  Eating out

•  Exercising guidelines

•  Diabetes medications

•  Blood sugar testing and goals

•  Dangerous high and low blood sugars
