Diabetes Management Program
The WakeMed Diabetes Management Program Can Help
Our caring, experienced staff of diabetes nurse clinicians and dietitians can help you learn to control your diabetes by eating healthy, exercising and taking your medications properly. We provide this education and support through our Outpatient Program and, if you need to be in the hospital, through our Inpatient Services. Services are available at WakeMed's Raleigh campus and WakeMed Cary Hospital.

Dealing with Pre-Diabetes
Before developing Type 2 diabetes, one almost always has what is called "pre-diabetes." Pre-diabetes is a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. People with pre-diabetes have a significant risk of developing overt diabetes.
WakeMed's Diabetes Management Program offers a 31⁄2-hour, one-day seminar at WakeMed North Healthplex and WakeMed Cary Hospital to help people at-risk for diabetes. Our class, taught by a registered nurse and registered dietitian, focuses on nutrition, weight management, diet, exercise and behavioral changes. The class fee is $55.
