Diabetologists are the specialists in managing the sugar level in the patient's blood. They can guide the patients to control the spike of blood glucose level. They are often a board-certified endocrinologist specialized in metabolic disorders. These physicians work with patients to bring blood sugar under control through medication, diet, and, exercise.
The most important part of diabetologist's work is to show patients how to manage diabetes in the best possible way. The diabetologist mainly uses blood tests in order to detect and monitor changes in the blood glucose levels of the patient's body. In the case of gestational diabetes and type 1 diabetes, they use insulin therapy and suggest a change of lifestyle including moderate physical activity and regular well-balanced diet.
Diabetologists treat all forms of diabetes, including diabetes mellitus, insulin-dependent diabetes, diabetes insipidus, and gestational diabetes.
Diabetologists treat only diabetic patients while endocrinologists give treatment for the patients having endocrinology problems which also include complications from diabetes. To become Endocrinologists you need to have a D.M degree in Endocrinology, but a Diabetologist needs an M.D degree in General Medicine. Endocrinologists go to college for 4 years, then medical school for 4 more years. Afterward, endocrinologists work in hospitals and clinics as residents for 3 years to get experience treating people. endocrinologists will spend another 2 or 3 years training specifically in endocrinology.
A visit to the diabetologist usually involves:
The appointment usually starts with a measurement of the patient's height, weight, and vital signs, including blood pressure and pulse. They also check the blood sugar using a finger stick.
The doctor also checks the teeth and skin for developing sores and skin infections. The patients should be prepared for questions about their current symptoms, family history, and eating habits and it’s important to bring a record of the blood sugar readings. The doctor will also want to know what the patient is currently doing for his diabetes, including any medications he is taking, how often he checks his blood sugar, and if he uses insulin or not.
