Pre-Conception Counseling for Patients with Diabetes
If you have diabetes and are planning to conceive, Carroll Hospital Center strongly recommends preconception counseling to ensure a healthy pregnancy and baby. You’ll learn to establish good blood control during pregnancy and how to make essential diet, exercise and medication modifications.
Gestational Diabetes Management (Diabetes During Pregnancy)
Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that some women develop during pregnancy. While most women with this condition deliver healthy babies, careful monitoring is important. Patients referred for gestational diabetes are seen for an initial two-hour session, with follow-up sessions scheduled as needed. You’ll learn how to best control your diabetes and stay healthy through a combination of nutrition, exercise and regular glucose monitoring. When appropriate, we also assist with insulin injections and self-administration techniques.
Adult Diabetes Support Group
This group gives those with diabetes the opportunity to meet others facing similar challenges, as well as to share information and experiences related to the disease. Led by one of our certified diabetes educators, the group meets monthly and features occasional guest speakers. Connect to our Education and Events calendar containing support group dates.
At this free, annual event, you’ll have the opportunity to see and test the latest products to help you improve your quality of life, control your blood sugar and live more comfortably with diabetes. Participants also enjoy giveaways, door prizes, vendor displays and a healthy lunch.
