From the USA:

About a week ago my father was told that he had diabetes. What should he do now?


I would suggest that the next step is to visit a diabetes educator to begin learning all that he can about diabetes and the management of the condition. Your doctor can help him find a diabetes educator nurse or dietitian or he can check with the American Association of Diabetes Educators ( or call 1-800-TEAMUP4.
