Diabetes Care

The UnityPoint Clinic Diabetes Care team in Cedar Rapids is committed to helping individuals with all types of diabetes live a better quality of life through education, coaching and support. Managing diabetes may be a challenge, but you don't have to do it alone.

Diabetes Education

Our Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) help people with or at risk for diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to change behavior and successfully self-manage diabetes and its related conditions. CDEs are required to have a minimum of two years of experience educating people who have diabetes and must pass a rigorous examination.

Diabetes education is offered in group or individual classes, and focuses on seven self- care behaviors that are essential for improved health and greater quality of life.

The AADE7™ Self-Care Behaviors are:

  • Healthy eating
  • Being active
  • Monitoring
  • Taking medication
  • Problem solving
  • Healthy coping
  • Reducing risks

Healthy Living Clinic

Obesity is a medical condition that can lead to decreased quality of life and increased health problems. Obesity and an abundance of central fat put you at a higher risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis and certain types of cancers.

At the Healthy Living Clinic, we evaluate and treat individuals struggling with weight-related issues.

Our providers care for you during and after weight loss. Close monitoring and lab work help ensure you are medically stable. They will also adjust medications as necessary, including those for blood pressure and diabetes.

Our Weight Loss Programs

If you have been on more than one diet, know that losing weight is not the problem; it's keeping it off. Our programs are designed to help you achieve and maintain long-term weight loss. Throughout each program, you are guided by a team of health professionals including an endocrinologist, dietitian and health coach. With the help of our team, you will lose weight safely and learn to manage a healthy weight for life.

This medically supervised program provides the tools you need for long-term success. Patients consistently report that Healthy Living Clinic programs have done more than help them lose weight; it has helped them change their lives.

  • Balanced Approach. Our approach focuses on making conscious choices. Nothing is "forbidden" – it is a matter of balance. We will work with you every step of the way toward your long-term health goal.
  • Supportive Professionals. Our group coaching model holds participants accountable to themselves, the coach and the class. You learn and practice new healthy behaviors in an environment of trust and understanding.
  • Medically Supervised. Rapid weight loss is safe with a doctor's oversight. Our providers will review your medical history and monitor your progress. If you have Type 2 Diabetes, our providers will work with you and your primary care physician to closely monitor your blood glucose.
New You Program

The New You Program will help you develop the skills and strategies needed to reduce your weight and improve your health for the long-term. The program entails a progressive series of weekly group sessions.

The New You Program includes:

  • 20 weekly, 1-hour group sessions for discussion and goal setting (meetings are mandatory)

Health One is unique in that it can be enjoyed in shake form as well as in baked goods.

This program provides the support, skills and tools needed for success while preparing you for your eventual transition back to grocery based food. Our philosophy is to get you "back in the kitchen for prevention" and our team of experts will help you develop the skills needed to make this a permanent lifestyle change.
