Diabetic Education

Rusk County Memorial Hospital’s Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) provides education and nutritional assessments to inpatients and outpatients with diabetes.

Diabetes is a disorder in which the body either does not produce insulin (Type 1) or does not use insulin properly (Type 2). The Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) at RCMH can help you to prevent and manage diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is generally diagnosed as a child or young adult. It is a disorder in which the body does not produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition and can be managed with insulin therapy and other treatments.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and develops when your body becomes insulin resistant. Type 2 diabetes can be managed and prevented with proper treatment and lifestyle changes.
