Because diabetes is with you 24/7, knowing what to do to keep it in control is one of the pillars of care. The certified diabetes educators at Wake Forest Baptist Health Diabetes & Endocrinology Center give you the practical tools and knowledge you need to fit diabetes into your life. 

Diabetes Nurse Educators 

Diabetes nurse educators provide excellent patient care, perform health and learning assessments, develop and update your individualized self-management education plan. They will teach you management skills, including: 

  • Blood glucose monitoring and how to handle sick days 
  • How to treat your diabetes when traveling across time zones 
  • How to recognize and treat low or high blood glucose 
  • How to begin an intensive diabetes program or use an insulin pump and other new technologies 

Registered Dietitians 

Registered dietitians are outstanding leaders in the field of nutrition and diabetes care. They are certified diabetes educators who offer individual counseling and group education classes that promote healthful food behaviors and skills at a basic and advanced level. Nutrition educators effectively address the challenges of weight control, modify food choices based on your medical history, and keep you up to date on the latest diabetes and nutrition information based on the best available research.
