I need help in deciding whom to see ASAP to get better answers regarding my sugar levels. I was diagnosed Type 2 6 weeks back and have been tracking by blood sugar levels since then. I was prescribed glucophage but wanted to try diet and exercise so no medications yet. Now after looking at the trends I have lot of questions. I have heard that the Endocrinologist might be too busy to sit down and discuss a whole bunch of issues other than the clinical stuff and a diabetes educator might be better. But will a diabetes educator have enough knowledge about diabetes to suggest not only diet and exercise recommendations but also steer me in the direction of meds if they are necessary? Or should I just see both ? if so whom to see first ?
