Have you been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, diabetes or are you struggling with elevated blood sugars? Manage your health with Beacon Health & Fitness’ Diabetes Education, modeled off of the nationally recognized Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP™).

Diabetes Education is a 6-week program that helps reduce elevated blood sugars through changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise using reasonable, but challenging goals that fit within your life.  The program is led by a Wellness Coach and a Registered Dietitian and focuses on helping you prevent or reduce the development of complications associated with diabetes.

Diabetes Education focuses on:

  • Learning how diabetes can affect your whole body
  • Evaluating foods that cause elevated blood sugars
