There are many types of diabetes, including Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Gestational Diabetes, Prediabetes, and Diabetes Insipidus. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta has stated that 9%, or roughly 29 million Americans, have Diabetes. While all types of diabetes are impactful to our society, Type 2 Diabetes is what most people envision when they hear the word “Diabetes.” In fact, 90% of those 29 million have Type 2. Our facilities offer all types of diabetes testing, including the most common types of Type 2 Diabetes testing, fasting plasma glucose tests and casual plasma glucose testing. Regardless of what type of diabetes you have been diagnosed with, Southeastern Primary Care Specialists is here to help you manage it.

Southeastern Primary Care Specialists’s Diabetes Self-Management Program

Successfully managing your diabetes can take a proper combination of advanced meal planning, diabetes medication (for available types), consistent blood sugar glucose level monitoring, sufficient physical exercise or physically-based activities, and professional training.

Our Custom Program at Southeastern Primary Care Specialists has been recognized by the ADA (American Diabetes Association) for its quality, self-management education. Your sessions will be instructed by a RN (Registered Nurse) with specialized Diabetic management training, and a Registered Dietitian who is brilliant in all nutritional fields, especially those that pertain to a Diabetic Diet.

Our Doctors, and even many doctors at other facilities, quickly seize the opportunity to refer their patients to our Program. This ensures that the patients they care for will receive comprehensive diabetes education. Those patients who actively participate in our Diabetes Self-Management Program have been shown to have substantially better control of their diabetes, all while decreasing the frequency of diabetic complications. This can save hospital time, money, and even your life!

Our program includes an individual pre-course evaluation, and access to three weekly class sessions. We completely welcome you to bring a family member or friend with you to the sessions, at no additional charge. For any further information, please call 770-716-7999. Together, we can put you on the path to successful diabetes management. We look forward to meeting with you!
