Diabetes Education

Have you just been diagnosed with diabetes? Are you having trouble managing your diabetes? Are you frustrated at trying to manage your diabetes?

About the Diabetes Education Service

An appointment with our diabetes educator can help you with:

  • Making healthy lifestyle choices
  • Understanding your diabetes medications
  • Home blood sugar monitoring
  • Screen for risk factors
  • Learning to give your diabetes 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. BHN provides a wide range of health services.

As BHN  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.
