Diabetes Patients

Do you have diabetes?
If you have diabetes, our staff will evaluate, educate and support you. The FMH Diabetes Program offers a 10-hour education program that includes:

  • An initial consult to evaluate and teach you how to better control your diabetes. You will also learn carbohydrate counting and blood sugar testing if needed.
  • Your second visit will be with a Dietitian who will help with meal planning and weight management.
  • Next you will enroll in our diabetes classes. These comprehensive classes will help you understand the different aspects of diabetes and teach you how to take control.
  • Individual diabetes education is available.

Pre-Diabetes
For patients with pre-diabetes, a one-on-one consult with a Dietitian will help you understand carbohydrate counting and meal planning. The purpose of this consult is to reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Insurance coverage varies and cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your insurance company regarding your benefits.

Gestational Diabetes
Our staff will assist you with diabetes during your pregnancy. You will have a consult with our specialists for carbohydrate counting and meal planning. It is important during your pregnancy to keep your blood sugar under control, and we are here to help you.
