If you have diabetes, no matter what type, it means you have too much glucose in your blood, although the causes may differ. Too much glucose can lead to serious health problems. The experts at Cottage Diabetes Education can help treat or lower your risk of diabetes.

Patient education is an essential component of diabetes treatment and can help prevent unnecessary hospital admissions and some of the acute and chronic complications of diabetes. With the support of a healthcare team and an increased knowledge and awareness of the disease, patients can assume a major part of the responsibility for their diabetes management.
