Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs)

(En español: Educadores certificados en diabetes)

Say: ser-tuh-fide dye-uh-be-tees eh-dyoo-kay-ters

Do you need someone to help you understand diabetes? Try a certified diabetes educator. They know a lot about the illness. They also know how to teach people with diabetes to take care of themselves. Nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, doctors, social workers, or other professionals can be certified diabetes educators.
