Until There's a Cure, There is Help

Lee Diabetes Care is a comprehensive program designed to help you achieve the delicate balance needed to control your diabetes with proper nutrition (carbohydrate counting), medication, exercise, and stress control.

Lee Diabetes Care is an excellent resource for people with diabetes at any stage. We offer a complete program of treatment and consultation services, through both inpatient and outpatient care.

The Certified Diabetes Educators at Lee Diabetes Care help you control diabetes, rather than it controlling you...resulting in a healthier and more problem-free life. Our educators work with your doctor to develop a treatment plan that can improve your life today and reduce the risk of complications.

Since 1987, the American Diabetes Association has recognized Lee Diabetes Care for quality patient education in accordance with the National Standards for Diabetes Patient Education Programs.


  • What carbohydrates are and what foods contain them?
  • How many carbohydrates you should eat daily?
  • When you should take your oral medication?
  • When you should inject your insulin?
  • That products labeled "no sugar added" are not sugary free?
  • What stress does to your blood sugar level?
  • How many times a day and when you should test your blood sugar?
  • What your blood sugar level should be in the morning? After meals?

These questions and many, many more will be answered during our comprehensive diabetes program. In the case of diabetes, what you don't know...CAN hurt you!

Comments from our patients after completing the class:

  • "This class saved my life."
  • "Everyone should take this class whether they have diabetes or not; it is so informative on how to eat right."
  • "When I was diagnosed, I thought I would never enjoy my life again. The educators showed me that not only could I enjoy my life, I would be much healthier."
  • "I should have attended this program three years ago, when I was first diagnosed. It would have greatly reduced my stress."
  • "I could hug my doctor for sending me to this wonderful program."
  • "This program took all the fear out of dealing with my diabetes."

Together, we CAN make a difference!
