Press release from the Livingston County Health Center
July 11, 2013: Livingston County Health Center would like to announce that all future Diabetes Education classes for the year have been cancelled, due to lack of attendance. At the same time, the we would like for our residents living with diabetes to be aware that we offer individual diabetes counseling by appointment at our office, located at 800 Adam Drive.
Certified Diabetes Educator Anita Perry is happy to meet privately with those newly diagnosed, struggling with managing their condition or just might need a refresher course to better control their symptoms. Clients are welcome to bring a support person, such as a spouse, who will be assisting in their care, or just giving moral support. If meeting during business hours isn’t an option, Anita is happy to work with her patients on a time that will work.
People with diabetes, unlike those with many other medical problems, can’t just take pills or insulin in the morning, and then forget about their health the rest of the day. Differences in diet, exercise levels, stress and other factors may all affect blood sugar levels. The more people with diabetes learn how these factors affect them, the better control they will be able to achieve. Therefore, as the experts know and will tell you, despite all the advances in diabetes treatment, education remains the cornerstone of diabetes management.
For more information about individual diabetes counseling, call our office at 646-5506 and ask to speak to our Certified Diabetes Educator, Anita Perry.
All services of the health center are provided on a non-discriminatory basis.
