Vascular Clinic

vc2Did you know that you don’t need a referral from your doctor to attend the Vascular Clinic?

Grandview Medical Centre Family Health Team covers the costs for rostered patients to use our services.

We offer a variety of programs, including:

  • Diabetes Self-Management
  • Heart Health Program (Pre-Diabetes, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, and Metabolic Syndrome)
  • Insulin Therapy Program
  • Nutrition Services

Diabetes Care:

Have you been diagnosed with diabetes?  We can help you!

Diabetes care is part of our comprehensive care that we offer through the Vascular Clinic. Our team, made up of Nurses, Dietitians and Certified Diabetes Educators, offer individual plans to help you manage your condition.

Diabetes self-management classes are two hour, small group sessions offered weekly for 3 weeks. They are taught by our Certified Diabetes Educator, Dietitian and Nurse. Classes meet the first 3 Thursdays of every month from 9am - 11am. It is important that you register in a month when you can attend all three classes.

You will learn how to:

  • Manage blood sugars while eating foods you like
  • Get the greatest benefit from physical activity
  • Understand and use your diabetes medications effectively
  • Use your home blood test results to improve control and give you more flexibility
  • Understand the complications of diabetes and learn how to prevent them

In Week 4, you will meet for an individual session with our clinical Pharmacist and Certified Diabetes Educator. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have and add or change any medications that may be necessary.


Heart Health:

If your physician has told you that you have pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or metabolic syndrome, this program is for you. You will learn what your diagnosis means, what the complications are, and how to prevent them. Our emphasis will be on lifestyle changes through diet and physical activity. You will attend a two hour class which will include a full cardiovascular risk assessment with our Nurse followed by a discussion on heart healthy eating with our Dietitian.


Insulin Therapy Program:

If you and your physician feel that insulin will help you manage your diabetes better, there is help for you at the Vascular Clinic. We can help you start on insulin or adjust your current insulin regime. You can book an individual appointment to meet with a Certified Diabetes Educator to start or adjust insulin and a Dietitian for carbohydrate counting.
