  • Advise individuals on the dangers of uncontrolled diabetes
  • Explain how to monitor blood sugar, what blood sugar levels should be, and how blood sugar control helps protect health
  • Help create satisfying and healthful meal plans to fit individual lifestyles
  • Explain how regular exercise is essential for controlling body weight and blood sugar
  • Help form exercise habits people enjoy
  • Teach how to prepare and inject medications, if needed
