Have Diabetes? Seek A Referral To See A Diabetes Educator

Nov 02, 2015

The American Association of Diabetes Educators released a video today to mark the start of National Diabetes Education Week that illustrates the need for people with the disease to learn how to manage their condition.  

The video can be seen here.

While it is often a covered benefit through Medicare and private insurance, diabetes education is significantly under-utilized. Diabetes educators help people with diabetes manage their condition through self-management and training. The curriculum is largely based on the AADE7 Self-Care Behaviors™ --  

  • Healthy eating
  • Being active
  • Monitoring
  • Taking medication
  • Problem solving
  • Healthy coping
  • Reducing Risks

Diabetes is one of the top public health threats in the U.S. today, impacting more than 29 million individuals with the disease and 86 million who have pre-diabetes. A diagnosis can be challenging, often requiring a lifestyle change that includes blood glucose monitoring and diet management. 

Diabetes education teaches people how to self-manage their condition and is a proven way to lessen the complications that are often associated with diabetes, including circulation and vision problems, kidney failure, even heart disease and stroke. People with diabetes and their physicians need to be aware of the multiple benefits that diabetes education provides.

About the AADE:

    In my opinion, it was really nice of the Association to publish a video for formally marking the commencement of the week and to take such an initiative in the first place. I have seen some buy essays in uk being published about this awareness campaign only. According to my sources, it was a huge success and people took huge advantages from it.
