Diabetes Self Management Education and Support

At the Centre for Diabetes, we understand that diabetes is a lifestyle disease, and
effective self-management is crucial for optimal diabetes management. We emphasize
the core components of lifestyle management, which include Medical Nutrition Therapy
(MNT), physical activity, smoking cessation, and psychological and social care. Here's
how we support you in your journey of diabetes self-management:

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT):
Our team of dietitians specializes in providing personalized Medical Nutrition Therapy.
We'll work closely with you to develop a tailored meal plan that considers your individual
nutritional needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Through education, guidance, and ongoing
support, we'll help you make informed choices about your diet, manage portion sizes,
and understand the impact of different foods on your blood sugar levels.

Physical Activity:
Regular physical activity is a cornerstone of diabetes self-management. Our healthcare
professionals will help you develop an exercise plan suitable for your fitness level,
taking into account any specific considerations related to diabetes. We'll provide
guidance on the types of exercises that can help improve insulin sensitivity, manage
weight, and enhance cardiovascular health. We'll also support you in setting realistic
goals and overcoming any barriers to physical activity.

Smoking Cessation:
Smoking can significantly worsen the complications of diabetes and increase the risk of
cardiovascular diseases. We recognize the importance of smoking cessation for overall
health improvement. Our team will provide resources, counseling, and support to help
you quit smoking. We'll guide you through the process, addressing any challenges and
providing strategies to manage nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Psychological and Social Care:
Living with diabetes can bring about various psychological and social challenges. Our
healthcare professionals are here to provide the necessary support and care. We'll
address any emotional distress, anxiety, or depression that may arise from managing
diabetes. Through counseling and referral to specialized mental health professionals if
needed, we'll help you develop coping strategies, enhance resilience, and improve your
overall well-being.

Diabetes Self-Management Education:

Education is key to empowering you with the knowledge and skills needed for effective
self-management. We offer comprehensive diabetes self-management education
programs that cover a wide range of topics, including blood glucose monitoring,
medication management, prevention and management of complications, sick day
management, and problem-solving skills. Our programs are designed to enhance your
understanding of diabetes and equip you with practical tools for day-to-day

Support Networks and Resources:
We believe in fostering a supportive community for individuals with diabetes. We'll
connect you with support groups, peer networks, and resources where you can share
experiences, exchange information, and gain encouragement from others facing similar
challenges. We'll provide access to reliable educational materials, online platforms, and
technology-based tools that can assist you in tracking your progress and managing your
diabetes effectively.

At the Centre for Diabetes, we are committed to supporting you in your diabetes self-
management journey. Through Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), physical activity
guidance, smoking cessation support, psychological and social care, diabetes self-
management education, and access to support networks and resources, we strive to
empower you to lead a healthy and fulfilling life with diabetes.
