Who do you or your child see for diabetes care?

Poll dates: July 7 - 14, 2002
Total Votes: 688

With most visitors reporting themselves to be parents of kids with diabetes, it should come as no surprise that most people (73%) report seeing a pediatric endocrinologist for their diabetes care. No matter what your age, it's important that you get the very best medical care that you can for your diabetes. That usually means seeing a diabetes team consisting of an endocrinologist (if you're an adult) or pediatric endocrinologist (for kids), a diabetes nurse specialist, a dietitian, and others depending upon your needs.

We had very similar results when we ran this poll in May 2001.
