What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes happens when your body cannot properly process the food you eat. This leads to extra sugar in the blood. Taking good care of diabetes can prevent blindness, kidney problems, heart attacks and strokes.
Insulin Pump Class
SSM Health Cardinal Glennon offers an introductory class to insulin pump therapy to answer all your questions: What is it? How does it work? Is it right for my child? How much does it cost? Will my insurance pay for it? How do I get a pump?
Classes are held in the Danis Auditorium at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. Class is free and requires registration. Dinner is served, so please bring your child’s glucose meter and insulin.
Please call us at 314-577-5648 to confirm your name and number of people attending.
