Q: Who is a diabetologist?
A: A diabetologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats diabetes and its complications. A diabetologist is an endocrinologist who specializes in treating diabetes. All endocrinologists treatthe conditions arising due to hormonal imbalance, but a diabetologist has in-depth knowledge about diabetes and its co-existence with other diseases like hypertension.
Q: When do I need to see a dibetologist?
A: You need to see a diabetologist, if your blood glucose levels are higher than the normal values and if you experience symptoms of diabetes such as desire to urinate often, severe thirst and hunger, weakness, weight loss, slow healing of wounds and frequent fungal infections. If you have a family history of diabetes or if you experience low blood sugar, its a good time to consult a diabetologist.
Q: Are diabetologists and dieticians the same?
A: No, diabetologists and dieticians are not the same. A diabetologist may ask you to visit a dietician after diagnosing your condition and prescribing medications to treat diabetes. A dietician will study your health reports and accordingly suggest a diet, necessary and safe for you to help manage diabetes, weight loss and any other weight loss goals you might have.
Q: Should I go to a diabetologist for weight loss?
A: No, if your need for weight loss is not associated with diabetes, then you should not visit a diabetologist. In case of weight gain in conditions like diabetes, a diabetologist will suggest exercises, yoga and refer you to a dietician who will help you with weight loss. If you are on treatment for diabetes and start losing weight without apparent reason, consult a diabetologist.
Q: Can a diabetologist treat diabetes insipidus?
A: Diabetes insipidus is a condition where a person has normal blood glucose levels but needs to urinate extremly frequently and has extreme thirst. Your doctor may refer you to a nephrologist or an enodcrinologist if you are diagnosed with diabetes insipidus. So, a diabetologist cannot treat diabetes insipidus.
