Certified by the American Diabetes Association
The Corvallis Clinic has been awarded the prestigious ADA Education Recognition Certificate for a quality Diabetes Self-Management Education program.
Our Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (CDCES) are knowledgeable professionals with extensive experience in pre-diabetes, nutrition, medication management and affordability, and managing of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and diabetes in pregnancy. They also specialize in the latest technological options to better manage diabetes, such as continuous glucose monitoring, insulin pumps, and closed-loop systems.
They give patients the knowledge and support needed to achieve greater control of their condition through informed decision-making, improved self-care techniques, and more active collaboration with their Diabetes Care Team.
One-On-One Diabetes Counseling for Your Unique Needs
There is nothing about diabetes that’s “one size fits all.” That’s why our diabetes specialists focus their efforts on what’s specifically best for you.
At every appointment, your Diabetes Educator will discuss any concerns or needs you have. They can help educate you on:
• The basics of diabetes
• Managing stress
• Healthy nutrition patterns
• Measuring your glucose levels
• Managing the costs involved with diabetes
• Strategies for physical activity
We meet our patients where they are rather than tell patients what to do. Our Diabetes Educators offer ideas that are practical and solutions that are simple. We want to help you achieve your goals, feel better, and enjoy your life more, all while managing your diabetes more simply.
Type 1 Diabetes Management
Our diabetes specialists work closely with The Corvallis Clinic Endocrinology team to provide the best care to patients with type 1 diabetes. Our certified insulin pump trainers help set up patients with insulin pump systems, optimize current regimens, and navigate diabetes technology.
Diabetes specialists also assist patients with continuous glucose monitoring, multi-dose insulin therapy, individualized nutrition, and more.
Type 2 Diabetes Education
Diabetes management is challenging and often overwhelming. Our diabetes education classes can help you navigate diabetes management, whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for many years. Classes cover diabetes basics such as blood sugar monitoring and nutrition. We also dive deeper into habit change and goal setting to prevent chronic diabetes complications, mental health, diabetes burnout, and diabetes problem-solving.
There are four classes in each series, with a new series offered each month.
