Diabetes Educators assist people to manage their diabetes and may discuss issues such as; monitoring blood glucose levels, medications, insulin, exercise, foot care, what to do when you are sick, the effects of food on diabetes and how to prevent complications from diabetes. Anyone with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, Gestational diabetes, or pre-diabetes (Impaired Fasting Glucose, Impaired Glucose Tolerance) can benefit from seeing a Diabetes Educator. Consultations are free and people can be referred to the Diabetes Educator through their GP via an EPC referral.
