How can a certified diabetes educator help you?
- By empowering you to adopt a health lifestyle and self-care
- By training you to use various diabetes devices (blood glucose meters, insulin pens and pumps, and continuous glucose monitors)
- By providing nutrition education to allow people with diabetes to eat “regular” foods
Pam said, “I believe people should start with small changes to build healthier eating styles that focus on variety, amount, and nutrition.”
