March 26 is the American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, which is held annually on the fourth Tuesday in March. We are encouraging you to take the Diabetes Risk Test, as well as share it with loved ones.
It is important that everyone understands their risk for diabetes. The new Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risks for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.
The Diabetes Center at Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center has been awarded "Education Recognition" by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). This prestigious status certifies that our program adheres to the ADA's national standards for providing people with necessary and accurate information and training to manage and treat diabetes.
At Saint Elizabeth, patients and their families receive education and support to successfully manage their diabetes and live a healthy life. Taking a team approach, nurses, pharmacists and nutritionists work closely with the patient's physician to develop a personal education plan tailored to each patient's level of understanding and acceptance of diabetes.
