Diabetes Program

 If you are living with diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes, the Provincial Diabetes Program can provide you with education, support and management advice.

What can the Provincial Diabetes Program do for me?

The Diabetes Program can offer you information and support on:

  • Getting Started Classes – if you are new to diabetes
  • ‘At Risk’ Classes – if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes or have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes
  • Individual Assessment and Counseling – for people with diabetes of all ages
  • Insulin Instruction – help if you are beginning insulin injections and how to adjust insulin doses
  • Insulin pump assessment, education and ongoing support – for all ages

Will I need a referral?

Your family physician / nurse practitioner may refer you or you can call a Provincial Diabetes Program clinic in your area to make an appointment.

How can I get help with my diabetes expenses?

The Diabetes Drug Program provides assistance with the cost of approved medications and supplies including insulin products, oral medications, urine-testing materials and blood glucose test strips.

The Insulin Pump Program provides assistance with the cost of approved insulin pumps and supplies for children and youth up to age 19 who are living with type 1 diabetes.
