Managing diabetes can be difficult, but you don’t have to go it alone; your care team is there to help. Members of your team can include: your primary care physician/endocrinologist, a Certified Diabetes Educator and a nutritionist. Other teammates include a podiatrist to help care for your feet and an eye care provider (an optometrist or ophthalmologist) to help care for your eyes. And don’t forget your support network of friends, family, and peers. Everyone has an important role in helping you to live well with diabetes.
