Diabetes Education

Lincoln County Public Health is now offering Diabetes Education by our diabetes educators, both RNs, to anyone who has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes or Gestational diabetes.

Classes are typically comprised of 4, approximately hour-long classes and can be done in either group or individual classes, based on your preference. The client sets their individual goals.

Educational topics for these classes include:

  • Nutrition: carbohydrate counting
  • Lifestyle Change: improving outcomes
  • Complication of diabetes: heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney disease
  • Monitoring blood glucose: what the numbers mean
  • Exercise
  • Medications

Our nurse educator can discuss all these topics and more with you.
