Do's and Don’ts When it Comes to the Language of Diabetes

HCP-thumbnail-smallFollowing publication of the joint AADE/ADA paper, The Use of Language in Diabetes Care and Education, AADE created a handy guide that summarizes the main points of the paper. It provides general language guidance for diabetes-related research, education and publications that are based on four core principles: 

  • Diabetes is a complex and challenging disease involving many factors and variables.
  • Every member of the healthcare team can serve people with diabetes more effectively through a respectful, inclusive, and person-centered approach.
  • Stigma that has historically been attached to a diagnosis of diabetes can contribute to stress and feeling of shame and judgement.
  • Person-first, strengths-based, empowering language can improve communication and enhance motivation, health and well-being of people with diabetes.

We hope to get this new guide in front of as many people as possible. Please help us by sharing it widely!
