What is an NDIS Diabetes Educator?
We recognised that diabetes is usually medically treated but there are many people with disabilities who find it difficult to manage diabetes due to limitations. Our Credentialled Diabetes Educator (CDE) is able to make diabetes management easier by tailoring tools, education and skills to suit an individual’s needs and ensure they remain independent without compromising their health.
How can we help our NDIS Participants?
Our diabetes educator focuses on not only assisting the participant but also training carers and family in managing diabetes whether it be; blood glucose monitoring; insulin injection techniques; adjusting to life with diabetes; understanding carbohydrates (portions, type and timing); lifestyle and sick day impacts of diabetes; mental health and managing diabetes; diabetes and driving; annual cycle of care; diabetes related complications and travel.
