Diabetes Doctors and Other Health Care Providers
Diabetes and Your Dentist
You should see your dentist once a year to evaluate your teeth and gums. Gum problems are common with diabetes. So be sure to tell your dentist and oral hygienist that you have diabetes.
Diabetes and the Counselor or Psychologist
Having diabetes can bring on psychological challenges, from feeling stress to being depressed. Talking with a mental health counselor or psychologist can help you cope with these feelings, manage the stress of having a chronic illness, and stay positive.
