You & Your Physician

What is a serving?

Your doctor is responsible for directing your treatment.  It is important to find a physician that you are comfortable with and that makes time for you.  Working closely with your doctor is the best way to manage your Diabetes and live a happier, healthier life!  

Here are a few tips when teaming up with your physician:

  • Be punctual with your visits.
  • Bring your glucose records.
  • Carry a list of your medications and supplements.
  • Ask your doctor to examine your feet.  Have him/her check for signs of skin breakdown, hot spots, cracked heels, or ingrown toenails.
  • Find out your blood pressure.

Remember that you are in charge of your Diabetes!  Working closely with a doctor and making necessary adjustments to your diet and exercise routine will help you maintain a beautiful life!
