Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

More than 1 in 10 Delaware Adults Reported Having Diabetes in 2017*

 
DiabetesSelfCare-01.pngThe statistics are staggering. The incidence of diabetes in the state of Delaware, and across the country, continues to rise. So what can be done to combat it?

The answer is: EDUCATION and SELF-MANAGEMENT

People with diabetes need to be educated about their disease and instructed on what they can do to best manage it, and in some cases, reverse their condition through lifestyle modifications.

Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) programs provide knowledge and skills for people who want to manage their type 2 diabetes and related conditions. Diabetes educators conduct each program, which addresses the needs, goals, and life experiences of people with diabetes. This program teaches you how to eat healthy, be active, monitor blood sugar levels, take medication, problem solve, reduce risk for other health conditions, and cope with your disease.
