How can diabetes education help you?
If you have recently been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes it can be confusing to know what to expect, how to manage your condition and what information is relevant to you. Diabetes education can help you understand your diabetes and implement self management techniques to reduce complications and improve health outcomes in the short and long term.
Diabetes education sessions will provide a personalised plan addressing a number of elements of diabetes management, including diabetes pathophysiology, disease progression and complications, blood glucose monitoring, HbA1c and blood glucose target range, healthy eating guidelines and medication options.
