Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires education:
- At diagnosis
- As a result of a change in treatment or health status
- When contemplating pregnancy
- During periods of unusual stress
- When blood sugar levels are too high or too low
We offer support groups and community activities. A full range of diabetes self-management programs are available. Our adult programs are recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Patient Education. See a list of Legacy's diabetes classes and support groups.
Insurance carriers generally require a referral from your primary care doctor. Coverage for these services varies by insurance carrier. We can help you find out how much would be covered under your plan, and options are available for patients who have limited finances.
