Gestational Diabetes Program

The nurse and dietitian of the Deaconess Diabetes Center promote the health of women with gestational diabetes and their babies. Through individualized care plans, we help patients maintain blood glucose control and reduce the risk for developing type 2 diabetes after the delivery of a baby.


Our Gestational Diabetes Program includes:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise counseling
  • Instruction on home blood glucose monitoring
  • Insulin instruction, if necessary
  • 6-week postpartum visit for type 2 diabetes prevention guidelines

We're conveniently located at 4550 W. Lloyd Expressway. Contact us at 812/426-9894 to schedule patient classes, ask questions about your patients' diabetes care, or get more information about our program and services.
