Diabetes Education



Nearly 25 million Americans have diabetes. The chances that you or someone you care about has diabetes are great. That is why Gritman Medical Center staffs a complete Diabetes Education team to help you understand and control your diabetes.

A Team Approach

Successful self-management of diabetes includes monitoring of blood-sugar, nutrition, exercise and, if needed, medication. At Gritman, you will work with our three certified diabetes educators, dietitians, nurses and exercise specialists to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. We provide education at beginning and advanced levels.

Medical Collaboration

Our diabetes education team is available for individual and group counseling for various diseases such as heart health, eating disorders and more:

  • Prediabetes
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
  • Advanced Insulin management and training including insulin pump and personal CGM sensors
    • Instruction and problem solving for those starting insulin or those needing adjustments.
  • MedGem® metabolic testing
    • This measures the amount of calories the body burns at a resting state. The results are used for setting and tracking nutrition and weight-loss goals.
  • Professional continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) studies
    • This procedure provides comprehensive data to identify blood glucose patterns 24-hours-day for up to seven days.

To schedule an appointment, call (208) 883-6341. We encourage your family to be involved in your diabetes care program.

Free Classes

Free monthly diabetes education classes are offered on a variety of topics. These classes are the first Tuesday of every month at Gritman Medical Center. Check our calendar of events for details about the next class.


Has your doctor used the term prediabetes to describe your condition? This means you are at high risk of developing diabetes and that careful attention should be paid to your health. Our diabetes education team can help you develop a healthcare plan that is specific to your needs and help you curtail diabetes with our Diabetes Prevention Program.
