The primary purpose behind the Diabetes Case Management program is to help diabetes patients stabilize and get back to a normal way of life while they control their disease. This is accomplished through individual appointments, group education, medical nutrition therapy and pre-diabetes education. The program benefits those who have just been diagnosed with diabetes and those who want to update their learning about diabetes or those who have just changed treatment.
Diabetes is a disease that will not go away—but it can be managed by taking the proper and necessary steps to control it. At Pella Regional, patients are part of a team of people committed to helping them manage their diabetes. The patient is the most important member of the team. The more the patient knows, the better they will do.
