One thought on “Building a Health Care Team

  1. Although many GP’s are very knowledgeable about diabetes care, I would encourage everyone living with diabetes to see an endocrinologist at least once a year. They are hard to get a first appointment with (I had to wait 4 months) but once you’re a patient they’ll be easier to see. After seeing my endo we agreed to a plan of care that my GP was hesitant to follow — insulin therapy for a T2 whose A1c was well within range using pills. But I wasn’t happy with the variability in my blood sugar levels and wanted to be able to manage it closer and I felt I was experiencing some complications from the pills. She worked with me to develop and test the plan and now I’m in a much better place with my bgl management.
