Diabetes Support

Submit request or call to make an appointment.

Certified diabetes care and education specialists have expertise in diabetes care, medication and nutrition education. Our certified educators are available to walk Norton Healthcare patients through your treatment plan, discuss lifestyle changes and connect you with our support group and community resources. Diabetes is complex, and having someone help you understand and navigate your care is one of the best ways to improve your health. Diabetes is not just what you do and don’t eat.

In addition to establishing a relationship with a diabetes care and education specialist, you can reference the below videos for common questions and topics relating to diabetes care and diet.

Prediabetes Video Series

The Norton Healthcare prediabetes on-demand video series is an online, self-driven, educational program designed to support you in reversing prediabetes. Videos may be viewed on your own time. You will receive a link in your email within 24 hours after registration.


Diabetes Support Group

Let’s Chat is a virtual and in-person support group offered monthly through Zoom. Sessions are led by endocrinology provider Stacy L. Koch, APRN. Stacy, a nurse practitioner, provides education and an opportunity to connect and talk with other people who have diabetes. Each month there is a topic of focus — past topics have included coping with diabetes, healthy eating, exercise and medications.

Wendy Novak Diabetes Institute Transition to Adult Diabetes Program

Our pediatric and adult diabetes specialty providers work together to ease a young adult’s transition from Norton Children’s Endocrinology, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, to Norton Community Medical Associates – Endocrinology.

They work with patients to make this an easy and convenient process. As part of your transition, these providers will share medical records and care plans to help you feel confident and independent in your care. During your first transition visit, you will meet with your new provider, diabetes educator and nurse navigator. You will discuss treatment goals, concerns and medications.
