What is Diabetes Self-Management Training (DSMT)?

DSMT teaches diabetes patients how to cope with and manage diabetes. The program includes tips for healthy eating, being active, monitoring blood sugar, taking medicine, and reducing risks. This program is run by diabetes educators who help patients develop self-management skills, achieve better metabolic control, improve lipid levels, and reduce blood pressure. Diabetes educators also help patients improve outcomes, help delay the onset of diabetes, track and monitor patients’ progress, increase efficiency, and help JH meet patient quality and performance goals.
