This is an introductory class providing basic knowledge of diabetes. The class will cover the following topics: an explanation of diabetes and how it affects the body; ways to prevent diabetes complications; nutrition basics for good diabetes control. Mrs. Rothe will also allow time at the end of class for questions.
“I hope to give patients an introduction to managing diabetes, provide tips on how to manage their blood sugar (glucose) levels, and explain how nutrition and medication affect those levels,” said Mrs. Rothe. “Diabetes often goes undetected for years, so it takes time to change eating habits and make lifestyle changes. This class can also be beneficial to anyone who has been told they have pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes.”
Persons interested in an individualized care plan to manage their diabetes may prefer to have a one-on-one visit, or attend a series of diabetes education classes with a certified diabetes educator. Amanda Rothe is a registered dietitian (RD) and a certified diabetes educator (CDE). She is available by appointment at the hospital for nutrition counseling for diabetes, heart health, weight loss and other health conditions. Most diabetes and nutrition education is covered by insurance with a doctor’s referral. Ask your doctor if a referral is needed.
