Diabetes Education and Support

Knowledge is the key to controlling diabetes. UM Health-Sparrow Diabetes & Endocrinology Services offers educational programs at E.W. UM Health-Sparrow Hospital, Clinton, Ionia and Carson.

Classes are taught by a nurse educator and a dietitian educator and cover such topics as meal planning, carb counting, exercise, controlling risk factors, and sick day care. Tracking your glucose is key to managing diabetes and this convenient Glucose Monitoring Sheet can help you keep things under control. Monthly support groups offer another avenue for education and family involvement.

Individual and group classes are available. For your convenience, classes are held during the day and evening.

If you would like to visit our clinic for diabetes education, please have your primary care physician complete this referral form and have it sent to our office for processing.
