Burnett Medical Center provides ongoing diabetes education to our clinic patients with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Our Diabetes Educator, Ann Nelson (pictured), will answer questions, address your physical and emotional concerns, and help set attainable goals to meet your specific needs. Individual meetings can be arranged by calling 715-463-7218.
We offer the "I-Pro", a continuous glucose monitoring system which can be worn for up to 6 days. Results of blood glucose readings are then graphed out for the provider who can make any necessary medication changes.
We can assist you in getting started on the Medtronic Mini-Med insulin pump and continue to offer assistance as you learn the ins and outs of "pumping."
A variety of information and handouts are also available.
