I have type 2 diabetes, diagnosed in 2003. I have always been treated/followed by a primary physician. I have started the process for bariatric surgery, my primary motivation being the potential for diabetes improvement/remission. Would it a good idea for me to begin seeing an endocrinologist? Or are those specialists best for patients with complex issues and/or difficult to control diabetes? Thank you.
Yes, it would be a great idea to see and endocrinologist.
