Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME)

A FREE information day for people with Type 2 Diabetes

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

The course 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, food choices
  • How to stop/control the effects of diabetes on the body (Heart/eyes/kidneys/nerves/feet)
  • Medications – how do they work? New choices available
  • 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. Refreshments are provided. For more information, please contact Margot McDonald using the details below.
