Our outpatient Diabetes Self-Management Education Program is designed to help you and your primary care provider maintain good control of blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol through education, medication, monitoring, and nutrition and exercise recommendations. These behaviors may be challenging to establish but research has shown that even small changes can lead to helpful improvements. Boston Medical Center offers comprehensive diabetes care in conjunction with nutrition, podiatry, ophthalmology, cardiology and dental services.
Comprehensive Diabetes Management
Our team approach to ongoing diabetes management includes individualized health evaluations by an endocrinologist or diabetes nurse practitioner, Certified Diabetes Educators (including nurses and dietitians.) Your diabetes team will work with your primary care physician to prepare a plan tailored to your unique circumstances. Diabetes care is individualized and there may be times when more or less intensive support may be needed. The comprehensive diabetes management track is flexible and is based on your changing diabetes care needs. Your primary care physician can also refer you for a one time consultation with an endocrinologist and then resume the care of your diabetes.
Our Diabetes Self-Management Education Program was established in 1993 and has maintained ongoing recognition by the American Diabetes Association. Education is an essential part of health care, especially for those living with diabetes. Our education goals are aimed at enhancing diabetes self-care knowledge and skills, supporting behavioral change, promoting general health and reducing the risk of complications associated with diabetes. We also act as a resource to the hospital and the community.
