Diabetes Care Program Available at Marlborough Medical Center
Local residents can now take advantage of diabetes care services offered by Middlesex Hospital at a new location — the Middlesex Hospital Marlborough Medical Center, 12 Jones Hollow Road in Marlborough.
The Middlesex Hospital Diabetes Care Program is designed to help all people with diabetes or pre-diabetes better manage their condition. Services include individual educational sessions with a registered dietitian/certified diabetes educator about healthy eating for blood sugar control and weight management; insulin administration; blood glucose monitoring; taking medications; ways to overcome exercise barriers; coping strategies and problem solving for high and low blood glucose levels. The program is based on the national standards for diabetes self-management education programs and is recognized by the American Diabetes Association and is accredited by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA). There is a fee for the service. However, most insurances, including Medicare, cover diabetes education with the customary copay.
