Diabetes is a serious, chronic condition. By keeping blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible, you can prevent complications like blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure or nerve damage. Counseling and self-management classes provide instruction on glucose monitoring, using insulin and insulin pumps, carbohydrate counting and overall nutritional counseling for weight control, heart disease and other medical conditions.
