I would like to know because I want to become this someday. I know a couple of people who are now diabetics and I would like to help people like them.
Hi Kayla: most people who specialize in diabetes are called endocrinologists or diabetologists. These doctors go to medical school and generally spend several years learning about endocrinology (glands such as thyroid, pituitary, adrenal etc) as well as the pancreas (diabetes). Some doctors just specialize in diabetes like myself. There are some general internal medicine doctors that do take care of patients with diabetes who usually work with the specialists. Most endocrinologists and diabetologists work with a group of diabetes educators including nurses, dieticians and psychologists as well as other related specialties. Hope this is helpful.
Thankyou so much.
