  • 4 Key times to see a Diabetes Care and Education Specialist...
    • Diagnosis
    • Annual assessments
    • When new complicating factors arise (e.g., new health conditions, the onset of a diabetes-related complication)
    • When there are transitions in care (e.g., moving to a new city, switching health care providers, etc.)
  •  Continuous Glucose Monitoring: Advances in technology have made this available. This might be right for you especially if you are doing everything you can, but can't get the A1C down.
