If not taken care of, diabetes can lead to much more serious, even life-threatening, conditions. At the Diabetes Centers of Ascension Saint Thomas Health, we provide helpful resources including educational classes on how to manage your diabetes. Our specially trained care team educates and supports you. Together, we help you attain your personal nutrition, exercise and weight loss goals, and learn how to perform your daily diabetes care tasks.

Gestational diabetes care

If you are pregnant and have pre-existing or gestational diabetes, attending diabetes education is essential.

Diabetes in Pregnancy education is provided in small group classes or individual sessions when appropriate.
