Foot care is extremely important for diabetics. Scratches, cuts or sores may take longer to heal than normal. In some cases, an untreated sore on the foot of a diabetic may refuse to heal, leading to infections that cause additional problems, especially for the elderly.

In order to become a diabetes educator, however, there are several criteria that must be met. Once these criteria are met, you will reach a position where you can help thousands of people diagnosed with diabetes and teach them how to properly manage their condition.
