Diabetes resources in your community
MaineHealth offers diabetes classes online and in the communities we serve. Classes are taught by certified diabetes educators, or by diabetes educators working on their certification. There are options for people for people with prediabetes, for those with diabetes, and for caregivers. Individual support for diabetes is also offered at MaineHealth provider practices, local hospitals and other community settings:

Managing diabetes can require a number of behavior changes such as diet and exercise. MaineHealth behavioral health clinicians can help with this. Talk to your provider about referral to a MaineHealth behavioral health provider.
