Patients with diabetes have too much sugar in their blood.
Recent studies have found that controlling blood sugar helps prevent
serious problems that can be caused by diabetes.
These can include problems with the eyes, kidneys and nerves,
which can lead to blindness, dialysis, or amputation.
Endocrinologists treat diabetes with diet and medications, including insulin.
They also work closely with patients to control blood sugar and monitor
them so they can prevent health problems.
