Diabetes Treatment

Work with an Adventist HealthCare diabetes specialist to create a treatment plan that focuses on your goals and wellbeing – and may include services such as nutrition counseling, insulin education and home health care.

Individualized Care Plan

You and your loved ones will get guidance and support from your primary care provider and other members of your care team. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Blood sugar monitoring
  • Diabetes education program
  • Lifestyle changes, such as following a diabetes-friendly meal plan and getting enough exercise
  • Medications

Diabetes Nutrition Counseling

Learn which foods help control blood sugar and which foods to avoid to manage diabetes through your diet. You may benefit from one-on-one or group sessions with a registered dietitian at one of our hospitals.

Learn to Use Insulin

Insulin is a hormone used by the body to control blood sugar levels and give you energy. But if you have diabetes, your body isn’t able to use or make insulin normally. Insulin therapy can help you keep your blood sugar at a normal level.

Insulin Equipment

Depend on our staff to help you take insulin as recommended by your doctor. We’ll help you learn to safely use and store the devices and equipment you need to take your medication. You may have training to use:

  • Insulin pen – Disposable needle you use to inject the recommended amount of insulin from a cartridge into your body
  • Insulin pump – Small device that sends insulin into the body throughout the day through a catheter, a thin and hollow tube placed under the skin

Home Care for Diabetes

Take advantage of convenient diabetes home care. Rely on our skilled providers for:

  • Blood sugar monitoring
  • Care for the skin and feet
  • Dietary counseling and meal planning
  • Home safety assessments
  • Medication management
  • Referrals to community services
  • Support to live independently as possible
