King’s Daughters’ Health welcomes Mackenzie Torline, RN, BSN as its new Diabetes Educator in the Diabetes Care Center. Torline previously worked in the Emergency Department at KDH. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from IUPUC in Columbus, Indiana.
Torline said she has a passion for education and looks forward to helping patients manage a chronic disease like diabetes. She provides counseling and education for individuals with Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes. Torline said education helps people learn to live with their disease through healthy nutrition, physical activity, and appropriate blood sugar monitoring.
"Diabetes isn't a pass/fail disease,” Torline said. “You are not a failure if your blood sugars are out of range. Diabetes requires some major lifestyle changes. You will have good days and you will have bad days. My goal is to help support you through your journey, to help guide you into more of the better days.”
