Diabetes Education

The Diabetes Education Program at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare is recognized by the American Diabetes Association as a high quality diabetes program. Diabetes education classes are instructed by registered dietitians and registered nurses who have additional training in diabetes management and are certified diabetes educators.

Initial sessions are done individually so you can set goals one on one with a diabetes educator. Individual and group education sessions are available.
 
A referral from your physician is needed to start the program. Educators communicate with your doctor to obtain important background information about your diagnoses and medication. They help you set goals to stay healthy with diabetes and communicate your treatment goals to your primary doctor.
 
Our Programs Are:
•   Recognized by the American Diabetes Assocation
•   Certified by the State of Iowa
•   Staffed by Licensed Professionals with additional certifications in Diabetes Education
 

Medical Nutrition Therapy
Individualized nutrition recommendations are developed by a Registered Dietitian to select the best amounts and types of foods for your medical conditions. Meal planning guides and resources to guide you in making the food selections will be provided.
 
Nutrition therapy can treat or control conditions such as celiac disease, fructose intolerance, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes.
