Richardson Diabetes Education

Learn How to Self-Manage Diabetes

Learning how to manage diabetes is the most critical component of caring for yourself after you’ve been diagnosed. Diabetes can result in serious health conditions if a person does not understand how to care for themselves. At Methodist Richardson Medical Center, our diabetes education services can help you prevent or delay diabetes-related problems like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations, erectile dysfunction, and blindness.

In our diabetes education course, you will learn:

  • How to build a diabetes friendly diet
  • How diabetes works and what you can do to keep it under control
  • Wound prevention and care
  • Fun ways to stay active
  • The long-term complications of diabetes and how to prevent them
  • How to manage stress
  • Where you can find community support resources

When you have diabetes your health care team is very important; however, most of the time you will be responsible for your own care.
