Diabetes Education

The diabetes team includes a group of health care professionals who support and assist clients by helping them better manage their diabetes.

Our Clients: Our clients are the most important members of the diabetes care team. The diabetes care team depends on its clients to provide them with accurate information about their condition. Monitoring blood sugar is an important part of effective treatment. It tells us whether the prescribed treatment is working l or not. Client participation in monitoring blood sugar levels also helps prevent or reduce the episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Registered Dietitian (RD): A registered dietitian is an expert in nutrition and will help clients determine their food requirements based on their desired weight, lifestyle, medication, and other health goals. The RD helps clients make daily food choices which will helps them control their blood sugars better.

Registered Nurse (RN): A registered nurse helps clients understand the effect of the medication or insulin they are on. The RN can help clients better understand diabetes and will explain how to deal with common issues that may arise when managing the disease.

Chiropodist (Foot care): A chiropodist checks the health of your feet, treats any identified problems, and provides information about how to care for your feet on an on-going basis.
