Diabetes Support Group

The Diabetes Support Group at FCH is here for anyone looking for support in dealing with Diabetes. You can join the Diabetes Support Group for free.  It provides a great resource for those folks that are newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for some time.  Each month, the dietitian leads the group in a nutrition education topic related to diabetes control.   The group serves as a place for members to receive the accountability they need in order to reach their goals and learn to better manage their disease.

This group meets the 4th Monday of every month. Please feel free to bring a friend that may benefit from the discussion. Pre-registration is not required and there is no cost to attend.

For questions, contact Miki Loos at (402) 759-3167 Ext. 571 or mloos@myfch.org.

All endocrinology services are offered via telehealth at Fillmore County Hospital. Telehealth is telecommunication technology that delivers virtual medical health services. During each appointment, you will have an endocrinology nurse facilitating the appointment with Dr. Eiland and dedicated to helping you from the start to finish. This nurse will also be the one working closely with you to gain full understanding of your treatment plan and follow-up instructions from Dr. Eiland. 

Endocrinologists specialize in the study of the endocrine system which produces hormones affecting metabolism, appetite, growth and development, sleep, mood, and many other bodily functions. By having such a specialized study and focused monitoring algorithm, these doctors can typically diagnose the issues and identify a resolution much faster than a primary physician.
