Diabetes Center

Diabetes Management

With the proper education and support, you can take control of your diabetes rather than having your diabetes take control of you. Through appropriate treatment options, basic information and taking an active role in the management of your diabetes, you can a lead full, healthy and productive life.

If left unmanaged, diabetes can often lead to debilitating and even life-threatening complications. Certified by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), The Diabetes Center at Holy Name Medical Center provides programs and counseling that reflect the highest standard of education for patients about behavior change, prevention and care during complications. Our goal is to help people who are living with diabetes to self manage their disease to prevent and/or delay possible complications.

Patients with diabetes receive counseling from a registered nurse and /or registered dietitian who are also certified diabetes educators on:
  • Insulin self-administration
  • Blood sugar monitoring
  • Exercise
  • Health maintenance and the importance of routine physical follow-up
  • Insulin pump therapy
  • Continuous glucose monitoring
Our combination of education and emotional support helps our patients avoid long-term complications from diabetes. Ask your doctor for a prescription for Diabetes Self Management Education (DSME).

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the Diabetes Center at 201-833-3371. Daytime and evening, group as well as one-to-one counseling sessions are offered.

  • Comprehensive education to people with metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, or gestational diabetes.
