Your Physician or Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Your physician or NP will work with you to safely achieve healthy targets for blood glucose, blood pressure and blood fat levels. Your physician or NP will prescribe and adjust medications as required, and refer you to specialists if necessary. He or she will order lab tests and examinations in order to evaluate your control, and screen for complications. It is important to share your questions and suggestions when meeting with your physician or NP. Keep your diabetes logbook up to date, and bring it with you, so that you can review your glucose readings together. Make notes for yourself between visits so you don’t forget your questions when you arrive for your appointment.
