Our Diabetes Educator is there with you the entire way through your journey. When you are first diagnosed she can explain what diabetes is and provide individualised advice on how to get your blood glucose levels within the appropriate target range. In conjunction with your general practitioner she will also help you organise tests and screenings for diabetes complications. This will vary depending on your diabetes, your lifestyle and your age.
We are also able to measure glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) to get an overall picture of what your average blood sugar levels have been over a period of weeks/months. To book in with the Diabetic Educator please call reception on 9987 2226. You will require a care plan and a referral from your General Practitioner so this education session can be bulk billed.
