Treatment usually involves a multidisciplinary team. The diabetologist coordinates diabetic educators, nurses, podiatrists, ophthalmologists and renal physicians to eduacte, treat and monitor a patient. Treatment usually involves medications either orally or insulin injections.
Your diabetologist will ask about your diabetes in detail. They will ask about current symptoms, duration of illness, complications of diabetes and level of control you have had. Other illnesses, medications, allergies and social history are also important.
Your diabetologist will perform a general examination but will particularly focus on searching for complications related to your diabetes. These generally involve the cardiovascular system (heart and blood vessels), the eyes (retinal vessels), kidneys and nerves.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
