Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease that is a public health problem worldwide due to its prevalence, and mortality and complications that arise and consequently the high costs for both the patient, his family, the society and therefore for the state . In accordance with the statement by Joslin E [2-4] when he said “Education is not a part of the treatment of diabetes, it is the treatment” and “The diabetic who knows the most is the one who lives the most” and given that Diabetes education is one of the fundamental pillars to achieve the short and medium term objectives and in virtue that any member of the health team can fulfill this role, it is necessary to give relevance to education in DM as a therapeutic strategy of high value.
