  • How to obtain and use a glucose monitor
  • How to use an insulin pump
  • How to count carbohydrates and what your goal should be
  • Managing sick days
  • Proper foot care and the importance of exercise and healthy eating

In addition, as members of your healthcare team, the CDE's are in close contact with your physician to discuss any relevant matter relating to diabetic care.
