What role does my PCP have in diagnosing or treating diabetes?

Your primary care provider may be the one to make the initial diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes and begin your treatment plan. They will order tests to check your blood sugar levels, prescribe medications, and recommend lifestyle and diet adjustments to better manage your diabetes. Because the condition can cause symptoms throughout the body, your primary care doctor will be in charge of coordinating your care with specialists who can treat them. If you show early signs or symptoms of diabetes or prediabetes, your doctor may discuss options or treatments to improve your blood sugar levels and reduce your risk of developing the condition.

Why is it important to have a primary care physician to help you manage diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic, or long-term, illness that requires certain lifestyle changes and frequent checkups with your primary care provider, who will help you understand your diagnosis and create the right treatment plan for you to prevent complications. Having diabetes can increase your risk of developing diseases that affect certain parts of the body, such as your feet or eyes. Your primary care physician will often coordinate your care with other specialists to ensure you have personalized treatment.
