Do You Have an Endocrinologist on Your Diabetes Health Team?

Eating well, maintaining your levels, and getting good exercising are only a few aspects of staying healthy as a diabetic. It’s also imperative that you have regular check-ups and tests from your team of diabetes health professionals!

One of the most important members of your team is your endocrinologist — that’s because insulin is produced in an endocrine gland in the pancreas, and endocrine specialists are experts at helping people with diabetes minimize any complications that may occur. According to the National Library of Medicine, you should visit your health professionals every three to six months.
