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.

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.
