Diabetes Educator Golden Grove
The educational approach to Diabetes is to improve knowledge and information for the best self-care skills, including awareness of when to seek extra support from the Diabetes Health team. The topics covered are around life with diabetes from newly diagnosed to commencing glucose monitoring, healthy living, appropriate food choices and the benefits of daily exercise to commencing various injectable medications and the ups and downs of glucose and how to manage it.
