Can Type 2 develop into Type 1 diabetes?No.

How do I know if my insurance covers this type of education?Call your insurance company and ask if it covers Outpatient Diabetes Education Services with a Nurse or Dietitian, (if you have diabetes) or if not, ask if they cover Outpatient Nutritional Education, for your specific medical condition.
