About the Program
It is possible to live well with diabetes through understanding and managing your condition.
If your Health Care provider has said that your “sugar is a bit high” or that you have Prediabetes, you can attend our group education program or meet with a Diabetes Educator.
This program is your one access point to community education and support in Ottawa and Kemptville if you are 18 years of age or older and living with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.
To attend group education or meet with a Diabetes Educator, you need to register with Diabetes Central Ottawa at 613-238-3722 or online at www.diabetesottawa.ca. It is helpful if your Health Care Provider refers you because we ask them to send helpful information about you such as your lab work or your medication list. You can refer yourself if you prefer. You need to be referred by your doctor for some of our services (for example, if you need insulin).
