In an ideal situation, people with diabetes will have their disease under good control and visit with their diabetes health-care team regularly.
Often this is the exception rather than the rule. As the statistics indicate, diabetes is on the increase and the complications are serious and costly. Early detection, more patient education, increasing health-care team participation and setting goals for better self management are needed for change to occur.
The Central Ohio Diabetes Association is committed to helping people and offers a number of quality programs that can assist individuals in learning to live well with the challenge of diabetes.
The programs were created with a variety of individuals in mind who deal with different issues. The agency's plan is to provide a number of services to individuals which would allow them to choose what fits their specific need.
We encourage you to use the services that the Central Ohio Diabetes Association offers throughout the year.
