The Diabetes Exercise Center is one of the few formally supervised exercise programs in the area for diabetes patients.
Cabell Huntington Hospital hosts a Diabetes Exercise Center to provide a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes management. The Center is one of the few formally supervised exercise programs in the area for diabetes patients, and participants show significant improvement in their clinical status and quality of life.
The program is designed to help you prevent complications of diabetes mellitus through exercise, nutritional counseling and additional education programs. Clinical exercise physiologists coordinate the program and supervise exercise sessions, and the staff closely monitors your blood glucose, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. Supplemental oxygen is provided for those who are prescribed oxygen. Program components include:
The Diabetes Exercise Center is located on the ground floor of the Center For Lung Health at 1305 Elm Street in Huntington. Parking is available on the side of the building and across the street from the entrance.
To help ensure that this is the right program for you, a physician's referral is required. Please contact the Diabetes Exercise Center’s staff at 304.526.2529 to initiate this process. Once the referral is received, the staff will contact you to schedule your initial session.
The Diabetes Exercise Center is a pay-out-of-pocket program because it is not covered by insurance. Membership costs $15 a month. This is less than a gym membership and has the added benefits of program designed and supervised by clinical exercise physiologists, an individualized exercise prescription, close monitoring by a specially trained staff, weekly education sessions and other components.
