If You Want to Make Your Life with Diabetes Better, We Can Help
It’s the Whitman’s Sampler of diseases. That’s what is so troubling about diabetes; like the famous box of chocolates metaphor from Hollywood’s Forrest Gump, “you never know what you’re gonna get.”
Experts all agree, diabetes affects every part of your body. If left untreated, it can lead to serious complications like heart disease, stroke, vision disorders, circulatory problems and even anxiety and depression. The good news: in most cases, with assistance from healthcare professionals, you can keep your diabetes under control with simple things you can do yourself, like diet, exercise and positive attitude. You can learn these things, and we know how to teach you.
Welcome to the St. Joseph Healthcare Diabetes Institute of Behavioral Medicine, Maine's first organization dedicated exclusively to helping you improve your quality of life.
We offer a wide range of clinical services for diabetics, along with many self-help courses. We can teach you proven, tested methods to help you manage your diabetes successfully. We can say with all confidence that patients who take these courses enjoy them and gain significant help in their diabetes self-management skills.
