DSMES is your opportunity to have all your questions and concerns answered. Your diabetes educator would work with you in charting a path through or around your challenges that will remove most of the gloom surrounding diabetes management, making you feel confident about your chances of overcoming this condition and living the healthy, full life you deserve.
DSMES reduces HbA1c by as much as 1%. I have seen persons had their HbA1c reduced by between 4 – 6%. This is significant as it indicates a broader picture as to how well you are managing your diabetes and good management of diabetes prevents complications and other costs related to diabetes management.
