One of the best things that a person with type 2 diabetes can do is take a diabetes education class—either through a doctor’s office or a local hospital. Certified diabetes educators run the classes and they’re real experts on diabetes, providing you with the information that will really help you feel much more secure about managing diabetes. Several studies show that folks who have taken a diabetes education class have lower A1cs than those who don’t—knowledge really is power!
