Frederick Health Diabetes & Nutrition Center

We invite you to take our prediabetes risk assessment survey
to see if you are at risk for prediabetes.

If you have diabetes, our staff is here to help evaluate, educate and support you. The Frederick Health Diabetes & Nutrition Center offers a 10-hour education program that includes an initial consultation to evaluate and teach you how to better control your diabetes. You will also learn about carbohydrate counting and blood sugar testing (if needed).

Your second visit will be with a dietitian who will help with meal planning and weight management, followed up with enrollment in our diabetes classes. These comprehensive group sessions will help you better understand the different aspects of diabetes and teach you how to take control. Individual diabetes education is also available.
