Mary Costa RN BSN CDE CDTC

Mary Costa, a Registered Nurse and Certified Diabetes Educator has worked for one of the largest HMO’s in the country for nearly 30 years. She works exclusively with Adults who have diabetes: consulting, teaching, advising, and adjusting medications by protocol to help her patients reach healthy blood sugar levels. Mary is also the president and CEO of “Transform Your Diabetes Health” an online organization which offers education and coaching for people with diabetes, that includes Holistic and Integrative health practices.

Mary has worked with diverse populations, across all walks of life, and loves the challenge of making complex information easy to understand, with clear, and “do-able” action steps. Mary has seen what works, and what doesn’t, and recognizes that living with, and managing diabetes is not a sprint, but a marathon. While the end result may be the same, the journey for each of her patients to achieve their best Diabetes health, is individualized.

Mary and her work peers conducted a research project that evaluated the care of diabetics in groups, as opposed to one-on-one visits in the mid-1990s, and the results were published in Diabetes Care, December 1999. As a result of the research project, the program was implemented in all of the Northern California regions of the HMO she worked for. Mary is currently working in a program that focuses on promoting measures to prevent heart attack, stroke and the complications of diabetes. This program has won national awards. Mary has lectured internationally on these subjects.

Mary received her Nursing degree in the 1980’s, has been a Certified Diabetes Educator since 1990’s, and recently achieved her CDTC (Certified Diabetes Technology Clinician) designation in 2013. Mary belongs to the American Association of Diabetes Educators, the American Diabetes Association, American Holistic Nurses Association, and is a member of the Experts Industry Association.
