Diabetes is a complex condition that requires daily self-management including making healthy food choices, taking medication as prescribed, monitoring your blood sugar, and staying physically active.
What Diabetes symptoms you can expect depends on which type of Diabetes you have. There are two main types of Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes are often similar, but they present in very different ways. For instance, many people with Type 2 Diabetes might not exhibit any of the typical Diabetes symptoms for many years, and their symptoms can also develop slowly.
A certified diabetes educator can help your patient learn how to take care of themselves and guide them through your treatment. They will help your patient make health decisions and help them manage any problems that they encounter along the way. The certified diabetes educators at Sorogi offer individual and group classes to help your patient manage their diabetes.
Diabetes education is a recognized part of your patient’s diabetes care and is covered by Medicare and most health insurance plans when offered through an accredited diabetes education program.
The benefits of diabetes education include:
- Healthy Eating
- Being Active
- Medication Adherence
- Problem Solving
- Risk Reduction
- Healthy Coping
