The term diabetologist is used in several ways. In North America over the last 40 years it is most often used for an internistwho through practice and interest develops expertise in diabetes care without having formal training or board certification inendocrinology. Diabetology is not a recognized medical specialty and has no formal training programs leading to boardcertification. In other contexts the term diabetologist refers to any physician, including endocrinologists, whose practiceand/or research efforts are concentrated mainly in diabetes care.
Apart from regulating medication (e.g. insulin ) dosage and timing, adiabetologist will also concern himself with the potential consequences of diabetes, e.g. retinopathy , nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy .
