We help patients understand and work through aspects of their diabetes. Nurses with specialist knowledge and training in diabetes deliver our diabetes clinic across Northern BC, and meet one-to-one with patients
During an appointment, we assess the feet and eyes and collect blood and urine samples to evaluate the health of organs most often affected by diabetes. After each appointment, patients receive a copy of their results and we send a report to their primary care provider. Patients across Northern BC have benefited from these services for many years.
Our team includes a Diabetes Nurse Educator, a Vision Technician, and a Manager who collaborate with Diabetes experts across the province.
We serve individuals from our member nations living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. However, we encourage all adults and children from any age in the lifecycle to get tested for Diabetes when the Mobile Diabetes Telemedicine Clinic comes to your community.
Remember, people of Indigenous descent are at a higher risk when it comes to developing Diabetes. We recommend that you get tested regularly Services at the clinics are offered free-of-charge. The clinics provide a great way to learn more about Diabetes and how you can manage your blood sugar (glucose levels).
