The Real Cost of Diabetes Education

Mike Hoskins

Abstract

Whether we are patients, clinicians, or researchers, its easy to agree that more education about the best practices and strategies of managing diabetes of all types is preferable to ignoring actions that can lead to positive results. Now more than ever, research and reputable sources are confirming that diabetes education is beneficial to long term success with all types of diabetes.

If this education is so important, then we shouldnt be forced to pay more for that CDE visit than what it costs to see an endocrinogist. Seeing an educator can be just as important, if not more, than many other parts of a person's D-management and that can lead to healthier lives, fewer complications, and even less cost for insurers and the overall health system.
