Diabetes Self Management

One-on-one counseling and group-structured learning are tailored to need and may include topics such as: exercise, nutrition, insulin and blood sugar monitoring, medications, label reading, carbohydrate counting, and meal planning.

Diabetes Services Based at Medical Practices

Diabetes care and one-on-one counseling is also offered at some Franklin Health medical practices. To learn more contact your primary care provider.

Diabetes and Pregnancy

Six to seven percent of pregnancies are complicated by the development of pregnancy-related (gestational) diabetes. This condition has consequences for both mother and baby including: large babies, a risk of the baby needing IV support after delivery, and increased chance that the mother will develop diabetes later in life. To better manage both gestational diabetes and women who already have diabetes and become pregnant, Franklin Health Women’s Care has a special clinic set aside so they can receive physician care, nutrition counseling, and diabetes education at the same time for their convenience.
