What is your doctor not telling you about your diabetes? It is such an incredibly common condition so many of my patients suffer with in addition to their joint dysfunction we are treating. The problem I have found is so many medical doctors are not educating their patients on how to manage their condition once it is diagnosed. They simply prescribe medication and check lab values a few weeks down the road to check for improvement. Now, this is not a bash on the medical profession as a whole, but on the majority of doctors who fall into this method of care. There are several medical doctors I know who are great and provide excellent education to their patients. This post is for the many who are being treated by the doctor who is not providing you any information on managing you condition.
