Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Class Session (3 of 3)
Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) class sessions meet 3 days in a row during one week, usually on a Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Participants will gain knowledge in self-management behaviors such as healthy eating, meal planning, exercise, testing blood sugars, taking medication correctly, reducing risk of complications, coping skills and problem solving.
At the end of day 3, class participants will have learned lifelong self-care skills that help them manage their diabetes or pre-diabetes and better meet their blood sugar and A1C targets. This leads to lowering their risk for health complications such as heart, kidney, and nervous system diseases, as well as eye and foot problems. There is a 4th session several weeks later, as a follow up.
Certain insurance plans and Medicaid will cover class fees. Your insurance will be billed after classes are complete.
