Are you at risk for Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes affects the body's ability to use blood sugar for energy. The main types include type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Diabetes insipidus, a rare disorder, is not related to diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes). Diabetes symptoms may include increased thirst and urination, blurred vision, and fatigue.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has
recognized the educational services of Southampton Hospital’s program, “Living with Diabetes.” The program, coordinated by Janet O’Grady, MSRD, CDE, CDN,
has met the national standards of diabetes self-management education for the
period August 7, 2013 through August 7, 2017.
The Hospital’s program includes a free monthly class that takes place in
the Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute (third floor) at Noon on the last Wednesday of each
month. Each month's session features a diabetes-related topic and often a guest speaker.
To reserve space, those interested should call (631) 726-8800. Individualized counseling can also be
arranged with Ms. O’Grady by contacting her at (631) 726-8357. Most insurance is accepted.
