Don’t let diabetes control your life. Temple Health has two diabetes programs that will inspire you to make healthy lifestyle choices. The first can help prevent diabetes while the other will help you get control of your diabetes.
Temple Diabetes Prevention and Education Programs
Diabetes Prevention Program
The Diabetes Prevention Program is for people who have a diagnosis of pre-diabetes or at high risk of developing type-2 diabetes. The program includes 25 classroom sessions led by a trained lifestyle coach. The goal is to prevent you from getting diabetes.
Real-World Diabetes Program
The Real-World Diabetes Program is for people who already have diabetes. This comprehensive program will promote a helpful conversation on diabetes self-care and management and teach you about your disease in a way that is easy to understand. Before the program begins, you will speak with a Certified Diabetes Education and Care Specialist. This specialist will ask you about your medical history and will ensure you have a diabetes care plan in place.
