The Lions Club of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan Health Authority and Primary Care Network Alberta are hosting a Diabetes Education Night in support of services and equipment that directly benefit diabetes patients.

Funds raised go toward the local diabetes fund through the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation for the Dexcom project carried out by Lloydminster and Maidstone Chronic Disease Management (CDM) staff. the fund supports purchase of Dexcom Sensors so CDM staff can do in depth blood glucose evaluations for patients on insulin who are struggling with control. A sensor costs $85 and a patient can wear it for a minimum of seven days.

The data from this continuous blood glucose monitoring system has helped with management decisions with patients, Some patients have gone on to buy their own Dexcom Sensor as it has made a significant difference in their quality of life. Management decisions are made by members of the CDM team as well as physicians and most importantly patients themselves.

See You There!
