Diabetes management program

The Diabetes Management Program at The Austin Diagnostic Clinic is devoted to helping individuals successfully manage the day-to-day challenges associated with diabetes.

Our program has been awarded recognition by the American Diabetes Association and our team of highly-trained registered dietitians is certified in diabetes education. To meet the learning needs of each patient, we offer individual appointments and interactive group classes.

A referral from your physician is required to attend classes and/or schedule an individual visit with a certified diabetes educator. Please contact your insurance provider to verify your benefits.

Diabetes self-management classes

We offer a quarterly series of small group classes on diabetes self-management techniques. These classes will provide you with the information and skills you need to become confident in the daily management of your diabetes. Classes are held on Wednesdays from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm at the North Clinic. To reserve your spot, please call 512-901-4055.
