On find­ing a health­care team

Find a team you feel com­fort­able with. It may take time, but it’s im­por­tant they are on the same page as you.

When look­ing for an en­docri­nol­o­gist, I had things that were im­por­tant to me: I wanted some­one knowl­edge­able about women’s health and who was at the cut­ting edge of di­a­betes in­for­ma­tion, re­search and tech­nolo­gies.
