Diabetes educators are healthcare professionals who focus on helping people with diabetes to understand their disease, adjusting their lifestyle and behavior, so that they can have the skills to successfully manage their diabetes at home. Diabetes educators apply in-depth knowledge and skills in the biological and social sciences, communication, counseling, and education, which, in turn, lowered risk for diabetes complications and improved health status.
