Diabetes Management

Living with Diabetes

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) over 30 million Americans, almost ten percent of the U.S. population, have diabetes. Currently diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, and individuals with type 2 diabetes are at increased risk of heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and loss of toes, feet or legs.

Valley Health's Diabetes Management Program

Although diabetes is a serious health condition, it is one that patients can manage and learn to live well. Living with diabetes requires education and a patient’s willingness to participate in his or her own health. With pro-active lifestyle changes, patients can prevent or delay the complications that arise from diabetes and hyperglycemia. Valley Health’s diabetes educators, dietitians, and nurses can provide education and support to help people manage their disease on a daily basis. This puts patients in control again, allowing them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives while managing their disease.

At Valley Health, we take our patients’ support seriously. That’s why we have designed a fully-compliant and robust diabetes management program, which has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association since 1993 for the quality of our education program. We provide support and resources through individual and group sessions.


According to the CDC, eighty-six million Americans now have prediabetes, potentially developing type 2 diabetes within five years. If you’re at risk of developing diabetes, Valley Health can help.

The Diabetes Prevention Program is an intensive twelve-month lifestyle change program. With 16 classes in the first six months, followed by monthly classes for the remaining six months, the program is designed for those individuals ready to make a lasting change. It is offered at various locations across the Valley Health service area throughout the year.

The Diabetes Prevention Program is now also being offered virtually. Click here to learn about the next virtual session.
