Rocky Mountain Diabetes & Osteoporosis Center
Idaho Falls, Idaho
We eagerly embrace the challenge from the American Diabetes Association to Stop Diabetes. Our three physicians, six diabetes educators, research department, and support staff have both a personal and professional interest since many of us and our families are directly affected by the disease.
Through our ADA-Recognized Diabetes Education Program, we are working to stop every aspect of diabetes. These efforts include:
- Regular physician involvement in promoting ongoing diabetes education to persons with diabetes as well as preventive education for those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
- A complete and personalized diabetes self-management education program that includes comprehensive diabetes education classes, update classes, patient information nights, and individual counseling to meet a variety of self-management needs, learning styles, and challenges.
- Community involvement to increase awareness, promote prevention, and enhance skills of all persons and family members with diabetes. This includes participation in community health fairs, free-education seminars to church and civic groups, and corporate wellness programs.
- Participating in research studies for new treatments and devices to improve diabetes management and move closer to prevention of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
- Embracing new technology to help patients improve glucose control and reduce complication risks, including insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring.
We are heartened by the continued progress in diabetes treatment, management, and prevention and join the American Diabetes Association in the charge to Stop Diabetes.
