Like "The most important thing in finding a doctor is finding one that you feel comfortable with and who is working with you to treat your disease. The GP may not have all the answers, but if they are willing to learn along with you that is far better than an Endo that you cannot get a long with. Now Diabetes is very complicated and it is a good idea to have someone who is up to date on all the latest research and usually that would be your Endo. But if you choose and Endo, make sure their specialty is diabetes, as there are many diseases that they specialize in. Glad to see you are taking the next step. It is hard, but it is going in the right direction."
