Diabetes Education

The San provides a diabetes education service to support hospital patients with diabetes and their families. This service is available to all San patients including expectant mothers with Gestational Diabetes. Our Diabetes Educators are all credentialled with the Australian Diabetes Educators Association. Products and equipment can also be purchased at our Pharmacy at competitive prices.

Untreated diabetes can lead to complications. Diabetes education aims to provide people with the skills to keep their blood sugars within normal range. Important areas for diabetes management include lifestyle improvements, foot care and blood sugar monitoring to prevent diabetes complications.
