What can I Expect?
During initial visits, Diabetes Insight will spend time with you developing a plan that helps you overcome the barriers you face in managing your diabetes, develop problem-solving and coping skills and adopt healthy behaviors.
Some examples of the many activities that we will work with you on together are:
- Helping you understand exactly what diabetes is and how it affects your body
- Explaining how diabetes medications work
- Figuring out what types of food are best for you and how to plan meals that fit your life and budget
- Determining the best type of glucose monitoring device for your specific circumstances
- Suggesting charts, apps and other tools to provide reminders and help you track your progress
- Offering tips to help you cope with stress and solve problems as they arise
Diabetes education helps people with diabetes learn how to manage their disease and be as healthy as possible by focusing on seven self-care behaviors:
- healthy eating,
- being active,
- taking medication,
- problem solving,
- healthy coping
- reducing risks.
Diabetes educators are experienced healthcare professionals – such as registered nurses, registered dietitians or pharmacists – who have special knowledge and skills to help you successfully manage all aspects of your diabetes. Like many people with diabetes, you may find managing the disease is difficult. That’s where a diabetes educator can help, by working with you to design a specific plan that includes the tools and support you need.
100 euros for initial consultation (Hour & a Half)
