Diabetes

Award-winning education and in-clinic management for diabetic patients

Diabetes is a growing epidemic in this country. It is estimated that up to one-third of all Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with diabetes, or are at risk for the disease, we provide education and individual health coaching to help you maintain control over the disease.

Education

When you or your loved one is diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, the first step is education on the disease and how to manage it. Our Methodist Center for Diabetes and Nutritional Health has been awarded the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Education Recognition Certificate for its quality diabetes self-management education program. The multi-site program includes Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, with some of the program’s services available at Methodist Women’s Hospital. It was originally recognized by the ADA in 1995 and has earned re-certification several times.

Individual diabetes management

A plan to manage your diabetes is as individual as you are. Our nationally-certified Health Coaches work one-on-one with you to gain control of the disease. Our Medical Home program and Health Coaches are located in many Methodist Physicians Clinic locations.
