About Diabetes Self-Management Education

Diabetes is a very complex disease requiring you to make healthy lifestyle choices every day. Those choices include foods you eat, how physically active you are, checking your blood sugar and taking medications your doctor has prescribed. Through successful self-management of diabetes, you can feel better and lessen your risk of diabetes complications.

Inspira Health: Diabetes Self-Management Education Program has been Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Diabetes Self-Management Education* and Support.
