HGH Diabetes Support Group to Discuss Laboratory Results

Humboldt General Hospital's Diabetes Support Group will discuss "Deciphering Diabetes Lab Results" next Wednesday.

The group will meet from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, in the hospital's Sonoma conference room; Humboldt General Hospital Director of Nutrition and Dietary Services Tiffani Nalivka will lead the evening's discussion.

Diabetics, pre-diabetics, caregivers and those who are interested in preventing diabetes are invited to attend.

Nalivka said laboratory results can be puzzling at best and downright perplexing at worst.

"But knowing what the results mean, and how often we need to see our doctor will not only help us keep our diabetes in check, but will also help us feel empowered and confident," said Nalivka.

Nalivka said the group provides a casual setting where participants can ask questions and get information relative to their personal situation.

"With the help of many experts, we are able to deliver some very powerful education, and that education will help curb the serious and widespread impact of this disease process," she said.
