Classes for both Diabetes Prevention and Diabetes Management

Diabetes is a complex condition that requires daily self-management including making healthy food choices, taking medication as prescribed, monitoring your blood sugar, and staying physically active.


What Diabetes symptoms you can expect depends on which type of Diabetes you have. There are two main types of Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes are often similar, but they present in very different ways. For instance, many people with Type 2 Diabetes might not exhibit any of the typical Diabetes symptoms for many years, and their symptoms can also develop slowly.

As mentioned, Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes are the two primary types of Diabetes, and, depending on which you have, the Diabetes treatment plan might look a bit different. If you think you are experiencing early symptoms of Diabetes, it’s important to visit your primary care provider for an official diagnosis to determine the best course of action for you.

Just like most conditions, being aware of early symptoms of Diabetes can help set you up for a successful Diabetes management path. A glucose blood test is typically performed to screen for Diabetes by measuring the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood to see if it is aligned with Diabetes glucose levels. The American Diabetes Association notes that normal A1C levels are generally below 5.7% for people who are not living with Diabetes. With early and regular Diabetes treatment, you can reduce your A1C levels from 6.5% or higher, which is widely known as Diabetes range.

A certified diabetes educator can help your patient learn how to take care of themselves and guide them through your treatment.  They will help your patient make health decisions and help them manage any problems that they encounter along the way.  The certified diabetes educators at Sorogi offer individual and group classes to help your patient manage their diabetes.
