People living with diabetes are managing a chronic condition that evolves over time, and throughout this journey they will have many interactions with healthcare professionals. Helping them navigate through the maze of lifestyle changes and treatment options can support them to better manage their condition to improve treatment outcomes.


When additional treatments are introduced to help provide better glucose control or reduce the risk of comorbid conditions, like cardiovascular disease, the journey can become even more complex. At each stage of the journey, patient education that explains the importance of these treatments and lifestyle changes can help improve adherence – but engaging in this kind of discussion can be time consuming for you as a healthcare professional.
