According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death from disease. Individuals with diabetes are two to four times more likely to develop cardiovascular and heart disease. More than 2500 people are newly diagnosed with diabetes each day. The Boice-Willis Clinic Diabetes Education Program has been certified by the American Diabetes Association since 1999.
Through participation in the Diabetes Education Program, the patient will become familiar with the relationship of nutrition, exercise, medication, and self-monitoring of blood sugars to achieve diabetes control. Improved control through self-management decreases the risk of complications such as heart, kidney, and eye diseases.
