Diabetes is a complex and increasingly common condition. With early diagnosis and treatment, you can prevent or minimize complications. If not properly managed, however, it can have debilitating effects on your body, including your heart. Although there is no cure for the disease, there are many options for treating it, including new oral medications, injectable medications and continuous glucose monitoring. People with diabetes can live healthy, active lives through education, nutrition guidance and self-management.
Diabetes Education Center
At the Rush-Copley Diabetes Education Center, a highly trained healthcare team teaches patients how to cope and live with diabetes. Patients learn how to stay healthy and prevent complications by practicing better self-management.
The Diabetes Education Center is recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Education Recognition Program (ERP) as a provider of high-quality education services, meeting the standards set forth by the most experienced certifying body for Diabetes Self Management Training. The program offers outpatient services for children and adults with Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes.
