Duncan Diabetes Education Program

We offer three types of appointments:

  • drop-in appointments 
  • individual appointments
  • classes and group sessions

Individual Appointments

Our Dietitian and Nurse are trained as Diabetes Educators to help answer your questions and address your concerns, including

  • Blood sugar testing (including provisions of meters if needed) and blood sugar strip certification
  • Nutrition information for blood sugar and heart health
  • Lifestyle practices that improve blood sugars and heart health
  • Carbohydrate counting
  • Review of diabetes medications including insulin
  • Insulin and Victoza starts
  • Help with self-management of insulin doses to get good blood sugar control
  • Resources for improving mood and motivation

Classes/Group Sessions

Please see our list of classes and group sessions for more information.

You don’t need an appointment to come to drop-in. It is an individual appointment done on a first come, first serve basis for a short visit (10 to 15 minutes) to address a question or concern you may have.
