Diabetes Nurse Educator
A diabetes nurse educator is a nurse who is registered and uniquely trained to care for and teach patients suffering from diabetes. The majority of nurses working with patients with diabetes has a masters degree or are certified in the diabetes area. The Orlando Diabetes Project has doctors who are flexible and therefore willing to jointly work with your diabetes nurse educator.
The American Diabetes Association believes that a diabetes nurse educator could help you do the following things:
- Understand what diabetes is
- Manage diabetes and change your health routine
- How to make use of diabetes medications
- How to use insulin and administer injections on your own
- How to verify your blood sugar
- How to keep track of diabetes
- How to tell the signs of high and low blood glucose
- How to go about things during sick days
- How to ensure you remain in good health when pregnant
- How an insulin reaction can be dealt with
Understanding the information above is very important because it helps patients with diabetes or type 2 diabetes manage their condition, but it does not explain about how patients suffering from type 2 diabetes can improve their condition. Therefore in addition to knowing how to deal their disease, it's also important to for patients to know how to improve their condition.
Orlando Diabetes Project
The Orlando Diabetes Project has doctors that work with a good number of patients. Plus, these doctors will work in conjunction with diabetes nurse educators. This is ideal when the objective of both providers is to make the condition of the patient better.
