Diabetes | It takes a team to manage diabetes

Take a quick look at the number of other players you might have on your team as a person living with diabetes: endocrinologist (diabetes specialist), nutritionist/dietitian, diabetes educator, optometrist or ophthalmologist, retina specialist, podiatrist, gastroenterologist (stomach specialist) for dealing with stuff like gastroparesis — nerve damage to the muscles in the stomach resulting in problems moving food out of the stomach — nephrologist (kidney specialist), cardiologist (heart specialist), and maybe a personal trainer to help with best exercise practices for your particular stage in health.
