At the onset of your treatment for daibetes there is a lot of preparation, advice and training necessary. You need someone to explain to you everything about diabetes and to follow up on you on a monthly basis.
Doctors may not have enough time to explain everything about your problem but they can arrange for someone to advise you. These individuals are called Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE’s). These workers are mostly nurses, dieticians or some other health workers who have worked many years in the field and have successfully completed special courses in diabetes training. They teach you how to manage your diabetes and check your progress for yourself.
