Education is a huge part of living with diabetes. Unfortunately, many people with type 2 diabetes are diagnosed then leave the office with little or no education.
If they are lucky, they’ll get back to their doctor’s office for a session with an educator a couple of weeks or a month later.
But what happens in-between? Imagine the questions!
What can I eat? How do I use this blood sugar meter? What do these numbers even mean? It’s paralyzing.
So my clever friends at mySugr have come up with a solution.
Introducing mySugr Academy.
The first course (10 levels with animated videos, articles, tips, challenges, and more) is geared towards type 2 diabetes. We have type 1 stuff on the roadmap, too.
We hope this online diabetes education tool helps fill the gap between diagnosis and initial education, and maybe even proves to be a powerful supplement to traditional diabetes education.
I’d love to know what you think! I’d also love to know more about your diagnosis/education experience. Please leave a comment, or send me a private message if you prefer.
Happy World Diabetes Day!
