American Diabetes AssociationSelf-Management Diabetes Education* Program

Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Diabetes Treatment Services is Recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education*.

Through education and counseling, we can help you design a self-care program that addresses your individual needs and can help to decrease your risk of getting complications related to diabetes.

Medicare and many insurance companies cover the cost of diabetes education. A referral from your physician or nurse practitioner is required. It is recommended that you verify whether the services are covered by your personal insurance plan.

Services offered include:

Adult Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)

Annual Follow-Up Diabetes Self-Management Education

Gestational Diabetes Education Classes

Monthly Education Sessions – open to the community at no charge

People with diabetes are encouraged to bring a family member or other support person to any class or session that you may attend.

Again, it is recommended that you verify whether diabetes education services are covered by your personal insurance plan. Ask about coverage available for DSME and MNT.
