What is included?
As diabetes is a chronic condition which lives with you throughout your life, you need to know how to manage it. As a diabetic you require constant support and guidance and can?t all the time be with a doctor. So there is a need for a system which can help and answer all the diabetes related questions varying from nutrition, medicine to lifestyle changes. Diabetes education addresses problem areas for patients which can act as barriers to self-care. Besides this, it is important to know what complications can arise out of diabetes and proactive timely intervention is needed to prevent or delay this.
