Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

August 15 @ 09:00 - 15:30

A FREE information day for people with Pre-Diabetes or Type 2 Diabetes

DSME helps you better understand diabetes, its causes, and how to maintain/better your health. The day is run in small groups so you can get the most from it and ask questions in a safe environment.

The day is run by a Diabetes Nurse Educator and Dietitian (with Podiatrist and Health Psychologist support) and covers:

  • Healthy eating: label reading, good and bad fats, healthier food choices
  • How to stop/control effects of diabetes on the body (eyes/kidneys/nerves/feet)
  • Medications – how do they work? New choices available?
  • Your blood tests- what do they mean?
  • Goal setting (action planning/FREE support/where to now?)
  • How to be the best with your health team

You are welcome to bring a family member or friend to support you, kai/refreshments provided.

For more information, please contact: Margot McDonald on (09) 448-0019, 021818568 or email dsme@comprehensivecare.co.nz
