Until There's a Cure, There is Help

Since 1987, Lee Diabetes Care at Lee Health has been serving the residents of Southwest Florida by providing education programs designed to help you achieve the delicate balance needed to control your diabetes. Education on proper nutrition (carbohydrate counting), medication, exercise, and stress management are the key components taught to achieve this balance.

Lee Diabetes Care is an excellent resource for people with diabetes at any stage. We offer a complete program of treatment and consultation services, through both inpatient and outpatient care.

The Certified Diabetes Educators at Lee Diabetes Care will help you to achieve a healthier lifestyle, which will improve your blood sugar control, avoid or delay the onset of diabetes complications, and enhance your overall health. Our educators work with your doctor to develop a treatment plan that it tailored to your individual diabetes needs.

The American Diabetes Association has recognized Lee Diabetes Care for quality patient education in accordance with the National Standards for Diabetes Patient Education Programs since 1989.
