The Riverwood Diabetes Center has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association since 2005. We offer education and support to persons with Type 1, Type 2, pre-diabetes or gestational diabetes at our Aitkin, Garrison and McGregor clinics.


Diabetes Self-Management Education: In order to live well with diabetes we will help you understand how to best manage diabetes through healthy eating, physical activity, blood glucose monitoring, taking medications, preventing complications, and caring for the emotional side of diabetes.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring: We offer professional continuous glucose monitoring that captures a person’s blood glucose levels continuously, 24 hours a day. The data generated gives the patient and healthcare provider important information for making treatment decisions.

Personal Insulin Pump and Sensor Training: We offer education and support for those who currently use insulin pump therapy or are interested in pursuing it.

Medical Nutrition Therapy: A Registered Dietitian is available to provide education and individualized meal plans for blood glucose control and weight management.
