Diabetes Self-Management

Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect your entire body. However, through recognition of symptoms and disease education, it is a condition that can be controlled. Huntsville Memorial Hospital's Diabetes Self-Management (DSM) Program increases patient awareness of the triggers of their condition while educating them on how to prevent serious complications. The DSM program is conducted by a Certified Diabetes Educator and a Registered Dietitian.

The goal is to assess each patient’s condition and develop an individualized care plan. The program includes a series of individual consultations and progress report updates for the referring physicians. Areas of the program include nutrition, meal and exercise planning, blood glucose monitoring and medication management. This program requires a physician referral. Huntsville Memorial Hospital's outpatient dietitian develops an individual care plan for each patient. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for years, the DSM program can give you the skills to improve your quality of life.
