Diabetes Education Center
Do you have diabetes or have a loved one who has been diagnosed? Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. At Davis County Hospital, the Diabetes Education Center provides personalized care for people who have diabetes. The team will meet with you to explore your lifestyle and help make a plan that will work for you.
