Services available for people with diabetes or prediabetes
There are resources available throughout Alaska to help people with diabetes better manage their condition, and for those with prediabetes to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES) services provide people with diabetes patient-centered education delivered by a healthcare team. DSMES services are available in numerous locations throughout Alaska. Click here to find a list of DSMES services available in Alaska.

Participation in a Diabetes Prevention Program can help those with prediabetes prevent or delay onset of type 2 diabetes. Diabetes Prevention Programs are led by a trained lifestyle coach to support participants in making lifestyle changes such as eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. Diabetes Prevention Programs are available throughout Alaska, including programs that are available online or over the phone for those without access to a local program.
