We are happy to announce that our Credentialed Diabetes Educator Mosun Ogiji is now seeing patients at Jema Clinic.
Dealing with Diabetes can be an overwhelming experience. A Diabetes educator has in-depth knowledge of all aspects of Diabetes. A Diabetes educator is able to link you treatment with other health professionals e.g. Podiatrists, Dietitians, Exercise physiologists and Optometrists. We believe a Diabetes educator can offer great benefits and care to everyone who suffers from Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes, whether it just be initial information, an understanding of what may happen in the future and what to look out for.
For those who suffer from Type 1 Diabetes, you are offered a chance to receive help with medication management, meal planning, looking after your feet as well as eye care. If you suffer from Type 2 Diabetes, Mosun can help you defer the need for medication, and help you to transition to medication when and if that time comes. Educators can also help with other, less common forms of Diabetes.
