Diabetes Self-Management Training

The Diabetes Self-Management Training Program at Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) provides comprehensive, individualized programs to help people with diabetes stay as healthy as possible. We provide support and improve the quality of care for people with diabetes throughout Sullivan County and the surrounding areas.

The most important member of the diabetes care team is the person with diabetes. Our American Diabetes Association-recognized program focuses on self-management. If you have diabetes, we can show you how to take control of your diabetes and provide you with the skills you need to manage your diabetes day by day. A highly qualified and dedicated staff of professionals works together with your primary care provider to give you the best in coordinated care.

The CRMC Diabetes Self-Management Training staff consists of certified diabetes educators. Your CRMC educators may include a registered dietitian, registered nurse and an exercise physiologist. A Board-certified endocrinologist provides expert input.

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for years, we design a management plan just for you. Highlights of our program include:

  • Group classes for self-management education
  • Management of diabetes during pregnancy
  • Insulin injection technique and management
  • Individualized nutrition assessment and counseling for diabetes
  • Insulin pump training
  • Continuous glucose monitoring
  • Ongoing diabetes education including the latest methods of treatment and refresher classes

CRMC's Diabetes Self-Management Training staff recognizes that knowledge is the key to managing your diabetes. Our educators provide information to you in a warm, fun and interesting way.

We recognize the importance of working together with your primary care provider, so we require a referral for our services. We accept most insurance including Medicare and Medicaid. For more information, please contact us at 845.794.3300 extension 2106. We are available Monday through Friday.
