ABSTRACT
The article differentiates the roles of diabetes consultants, diabetes counselors and diabetes coaches. According to the author, a consultant is an expert in the field who helps patients know what the problem or the diagnosis is and tells them how to fix it. A counselor answers the "why" questions and helps patients identify and address the challenges that get in the way of doing what they must do. A coach asks the patient "what" questions, and helps patients reach their goal.
