Work With Knowledgeable Diabetes Experts

Diabetes is a serious condition that is currently incurable, but it can be controlled. When you have diabetes, your body doesn’t properly use the energy from the food that you eat. This causes your blood sugar to be too high. It has been proven that controlling blood sugar can reduce complications from diabetes. The following tools are useful for controlling diabetes:

  • Knowledge of diabetes
  • Appropriate meal plans
  • Regular exercise
  • Correct medication
  • Blood-sugar monitoring
  • Behavioral change goals

At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we provide educational resources for individuals and families on how to properly manage diabetes. We help our patients avoid the more serious complications of the disease and enjoy a better quality of life.

Reppell Diabetes Learning Center

The Reppell Diabetes Learning Center is an outpatient hospital facility that equips patients with the skills and knowledge they need to independently care for diabetes. The program is open to patients and their family so your loved ones can be prepared to act in case of an emergency.

A doctor’s referral is required in order to be admitted to the program. We do accept Medicare and certain insurance companies to cover program participation.
