Nanette Bentley, spokeswoman for Mercy said the classes should educate, support and help patients manage their diabetes and live healthy each day.

Some topics the classes will cover include nutrition, monitoring blood pressure, medicines and remedies, behavior, exercise and fitness and preventing the complications that diabetes can cause. Bentley said patients can also get help setting personal goals at the classes.
