Let the ADA-certified Shore Diabetes Center help you take control
Although there is no cure for diabetes, you can live a full and active life with it. The keys are control and self-management.
At Riverside's Shore Diabetes Center, we work closely with your primary care doctor to help you learn about and manage your diabetes. We can:
- Teach you how to control blood sugar levels and lose extra weight by adopting a healthy diet.
- Help you increase your physical activity in a way that’s beneficial and enjoyable.
- Tailor a program of testing and medication management to your individual needs.
- Help you get the emotional and community support you need to handle stress as you adapt to your new lifestyle.
Patients can be directed to the Center by a doctor, they can self-refer, or they might just walk in.
The facility is located on the hospital’s third floor, by appointment.
