Our registered nurse provides training to participants who are new to self-blood glucose monitoring. We teach the importance of monitoring blood sugars to avoid short- and long-term complications. Participants also learn the signs and symptoms of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, and what to do when these occur. As part of the training, participants demonstrate understanding by performing a return demonstration. Glucometer training is done upon a direct referral by physician, and participants are strongly encouraged to attend the Controlling Your Diabetes class.
