People with diabetes are more susceptible to many other illnesses and, once they acquire these illnesses, often have worse outcomes than people without diabetes. The cost of diabetes in the United States totals in excess of $130 billion. This teleconference will focus on assisting your in-home aides in understanding diabetes, its causes and treatment, high and low blood sugar symptoms and the impact of the disease on individuals under their care. The in-home aide will be able to describe the role they play in helping to notice and manage symptoms associated with diabetes.
