How We Can Help You
Newly Diagnosed with Diabetes
Being diagnosed with diabetes can be a daunting and stressful time. Here at DAHS, we want to support and educate our clients on getting a full understanding of the type of diabetes you have been diagnosed with. We can also help you understand and manage a healthy lifestyle that includes healthy eating and physical activity.
So, you‘ve been advised by your GP or Endocrinologist that you now require insulin injections. Where to now? Well here at DAHS, we can equip you with all the tools to be able to not only safely administer your injections but also understand the day to day aspects of being on insulin. Your consult with the diabetes educator will answer all your questions and help you feel at ease in being able to manage your insulin.
Medications for diabetes are always evolving and improving, and sometimes it may be suggested that you try a different medication to help you manage your diabetes. Here at DAHS we can sit down with you to work out which treatment is best for you and your lifestyle to achieve optimal diabetes management.
Women who already have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes and are planning to become pregnant can receive education and support to optimise their health and the health of their baby during pregnancy. We will individualise your care to prepare you for your upcoming pregnancy.
Gestational Diabetes is diagnosed at 24-28 weeks gestation through oral glucose tolerance testing. It develops due to hormones secreted by the placenta and increased demand for insulin production during pregnancy. Gestational Diabetes is managed by dietary modifications and where required medication support. The team at DAHS can help you manage all aspects of your gestational diabetes, in conjunction with your Endocrinologist.
The key to great self-management is being on top of your Annual Cycle of Care. Here at DAHS we can assist you to stay motivated with your healthy lifestyle and help keep you on track with all of your annual checks.
