    How to use "Wetnurse" in context?

    Wetnurses are nurses who are specifically trained in the care of patients who are diabetic. Because diabetes affects the eyes, skin, and other areas of the body, a wetnurse who is skilled in treating diabetes patients must be knowledgeable in many areas of care. Wetnurses have to be aware of the signs and symptoms of diabetes, as well as how to properly monitor the patients' blood sugar levels. They must also be able to provide the necessary treatments, such as insulin injections and oral diabetic medications.

    Often, wetnurses are paired with medical doctors who are also specializing in diabetes care.
