Will You Take 10 Mins To Fill Out A T2D Self Care Community Survey?

Why Do Some Type 2’s See An Endocrinologist?

An Endocrinologist or Endo for short is a doctor that specializes in “hormones”

We over simplify that to “watch what we eat, get some exercise and/or lose some weight”.

And for most of us, Type 2 is simply either a little bit of insulin deficiency or a bit of resistance to using that insulin (or more often a little bit of both).
