Have you just been diagnosed with diabetes? Are you having trouble managing your diabetes? Are you frustrated at trying to get your sugars under control?
About the Diabetes Education Service
An appointment with our diabetes educator can help you with:
- Making healthy lifestyle choices
- Understanding your medications
- Home blood sugar testing
- Preventing complications of diabetes
- Start on insulin or give injections
- Staying well!
Our Diabetes Educators work closely with our dietitians, so if you ask for diabetes education we will also talk to you about an appointment with the dietitian as well.
As well as providing the Diabetes Education services above, we can also link you with any other service(s) that you may need. Star Health provides a wide range of health services.
As Star Health is a leading provider of a full range of health and wellbeing services, we ensure a coordinated and multidisciplinary approach to best meet your needs.
