Welcome to WADE, The Washington Association of Diabetes Educators


Welcome to the Diabetes Answers.  This website was created for those with diabetes or who are interested teaching diabetes self-management. We encourage you to look around.

We are members of the Washington Association of Diabetes Educators (WADE) and the  American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). AADE believes that behavior change can be most effectively achieved using the AADE7 Self-Care Behaviors™ framework. The 7 self-care behaviors are healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medication, problem solving, reducing risks and healthy coping. Use the left navigation menu to learn more about these behaviors. The information posted is  not a substitute for the comprehensive education you will receive from diabetes educator.  Find an educator and program near you
