Come join us at The Villages A1c Manager Support Group. This unique program lets you take responsibility for your own A1c. Learn how to bring your A1c into target and keep it there even if you have been unsuccessful in the past. Keeping your A1c in target is so important if you want to prevent, slow or perhaps reverse eye, nerve, heart and kidney damage. This program works for both Type 1 and Type 2 and even for those who are on insulin pumps. Many Villagers who have struggled with their diabetes for years learn to manage their blood glucose levels, medications and A1cs within a short period of time.
The support group was founded and is led by one of our own Villages residents, Michael Albisser. Michael has a PhD, with a doctorate in biomedical engineering and he is a retired medical school professor with 40 years of diabetes research. He wrote an easy to use computer program called the “A1c Manager™” that helps balance your prescriptions based on your mealtime and bedtime glucose readings. This program is tailored for you as an individual because you enter your own personal blood glucose data.
This is not a lecture format group. But we are results driven. Each participant is reviewed each week based on his/her glucose readings for that week. Recommendations are suggested each week until you have reached your Optimal Diabetes Control (ODC). Most participants reach their ODC within eight (8) weeks.
We are a friendly bunch. Try our support group, see what we do and see if it’s for you. What have you got to lose except your high A1c and likely with less medication?
