Diabetes Education

Our registered dietitians and diabetes care and education specialists can help, with classes and one-on-one counseling. We can teach you about meal planning, exercise, medication and how to prevent health complications from diabetes. We work with people to help set and meet their personal goals.

Many classes require an order or referral from your primary care provider. Medicare and most insurance plans cover diabetes self-management education but check your individual policy. To register for classes or for individual appointments, call Southern New Hampshire Diabetes and Endocrinology at (603) 577-5760.

All classes are taught by CDCES or dietitians. Call to register today!

If you have gestational diabetes, you’ll learn about blood glucose monitoring, target blood glucose levels, and basic meal planning, including a starter meal plan. We’ll discuss healthy actions to be sure your baby has the best outcome, and to reduce your future risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Insulin Pump Program 
Insulin pump therapy is more successful with careful screening and training. You’ll meet one-to-one with a diabetes care and education specialist (and a registered dietitian if needed) to review diabetes management with insulin pumps and look at the various pumps available. If you choose an insulin pump, we’ll follow you closely to be sure the therapy is successful.
