For people with diabetes, we want you to know:
You’re not a “diabetic.” You are someone who happens to have diabetes, and you can live healthfully with diabetes and control it so that it does not control you. Diabetes Education with a certified diabetes educator (CDE) is one of the most important steps you can take in learning about and managing your diagnosis. We work with you and your physician to develop a personalized plan to keep you AND your blood glucose in control.
GET Diabetes Education is based on the idea that, given the proper tools, you can manage and control your diabetes on a day-to-day basis while at the same time reducing your risks for long term complications. Some of these tools include understanding diabetes, monitoring your glucose, carbohydrate counting, understanding your medications, and the benefits of physical activity. Do you know how to respond to high or low blood glucose? Do you know how stress and illness affect your levels? We are hear to teach you all of this, and more.
Sound like a lot of information? It is. But don't worry. Medicare and most private insurance plans reimburse for diabetes education with a CDE. So, whether you are newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for years, diabetes education is for you! Still not convinced? In addition to enhancing your health, research shows that diabetes education may significantly reduce your healthcare costs. In these challenging times, that's an important consideration.
