The team at the Diabetes Center Cape Regional Medical Center says education is the first step to managing diabetes.
If you or a loved one has diabetes, you know how challenging it can be to manage the disease, say the staff at Cape Regional Medical Center. Some may even say it can become overwhelming.
Certified diabetes educators help individuals with diabetes learn to manage their disease and to be as healthy as possible. The goal of a certified diabetes educator is to inform patients on the behaviors that will improve their life and make it easier to lower their blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. All of these risk factors, if controlled, can lead to a healthier life. They work with patients and their doctors to develop individualized goals.
