Diabetes Education

Helping You Take Charge of Your Health

Diabetes is a lifelong condition. Adjusting to life with diabetes can be a challenge and can impact one's daily living. You can learn to manage your diabetes. But you don't have to go it alone.

The Diabetes Self-Management Education Program at McLaren Macomb Diabetes Counseling Center helps adults with diabetes take steps that will make them feel better and stay healthier. This program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association for meeting the National Quality Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education, and is certified by the State of Michigan Department of Community Health.

Physician Prescription and Insurance 

If you have diabetes, ask your doctor if a diabetes self-management program is right for you. Medicare and other medical insurance providers require a prescription from your physician.  Be sure to check with your insurance provider to verify your plan's coverage for a diabetes management program, education, or nutrition therapy. We are a participating provider with most  insurance plans

For Nutritional Counseling please call (586) 493-8500.
