Diabetes Education

As a member of your diabetes care team, our diabetes care and education specialists work with you to develop a management plan that fits your lifestyle, beliefs and culture. They’ll help you understand how to use diabetic devices and use the information from these devices and your lifestyle to identify patterns and opportunities for improvement. You’ll work together to find solutions to address your most pressing challenges.

Diabetes education provided by a diabetes care and education specialist can help people with all types of diabetes better manage their blood glucose, develop coping skills to address the daily challenges of the disease, reduce the risks for complications, decrease costs by reducing or eliminating the need for medications and emergency room visits, and help find and access cost-savings programs.

Medicare and most health insurance plans cover diabetes education when it is offered through an accredited diabetes education program, which has met vigorous criteria set by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Southern Drug Company is proud to have met all the requirements and offers an accredited Diabetes Self-Management Education program to our community.

Diabetes may not have a cure, but you can manage it and live well. Ask your primary care provider about working with our diabetes care and education specialists at Southern Drug Company
