Diabetes Education and Support at Home
Registered dietitian works with patients
When Zeb's weight dropped from 210 to 185 within just a few weeks, he was worried and afraid about what might be wrong. Apprehensive about how to control this disease coupled with his fear of needles, Zeb also worried how this disease would impact his work and family. To alleviate his fears, Zeb's doctor referred him to MaineHealth Care at Home. Through individual counseling sessions with registered dietitian Tracy Cardelli, Zeb learned the essentials for diabetes management. Zeb shared that: "Being diabetic doesn't mean you have to stop doing everything you normally do, you just have to do what you're supposed to do."
