Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

Your di­a­betes ed­u­ca­tor will ex­plain your di­a­betes in more de­tail, cover­ing a wide range of top­ics. A di­a­betes ed­u­ca­tor could be ei­ther a nurse or di­eti­tian. They will an­swer your ques­tions (and your fam­ily’s ques­tions), pro­vide sup­port and give you in­for­ma­tion that will help you make in­formed choices. Your di­a­betes ed­u­ca­tor will teach you about the tools you can use to con­trol your di­a­betes knowl­edge, phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, food choices, mon­i­tor­ing and med­i­ca­tions. They will also help you set your own per­sonal goals. You will learn po­ten­tial prob­lems to watch for and pre­ven­tive mea­sures such as daily foot care, den­tal and eye check­ups. They will dis­cuss how to handle stress, an im­por­tant fac­tor in con­trol­ling blood glu­cose lev­els. Dur­ing fol­low-up ap­point­ments your ed­u­ca­tor will help you as­sess your di­a­betes con­trol, and work with you to solve prob­lems.
