Having diabetes does not mean that you cannot live a normal life.
For most people living with diabetes, their quality of life depends on how much they know about the disease and how well they use this knowledge to successfully manage the disease.
That's why UPMC offers diabetes care along with education and support programs, nationally recognized by the American Diabetes Association for quality self-management education.
UPMC Centers for Diabetes Education and Support is a network of locations throughout western Pennsylvania that provides these education programs and care to those living with diabetes.
Not only do we provide critical diabetes education, we also connect you to a team of experts.
Our diabetes educators and dietitians work with your primary care doctor and endocrinologist to help you manage your diabetes.
UPMC Centers for Diabetes Education and Support offers a range of educational resources, sessions, and events for people with diabetes and their families.
