Diabetes care team

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with diabetes, one of the first steps you can take is to assemble a diabetes care team. Your care team is essentially a list of doctors, specialists and other people who are supporting you on this journey.

Talk to members of this team about your goals, monitoring needs, how to best manage your diabetes, and what to do each time you meet with your healthcare provider.

Use any of the tracking tools on this site, for your unique needs. The tools can help you to:

  • keep track of your numbers and diabetes care
  • discuss your needs and goals
  • write out any questions you may have
  • list the members of your diabetes care team
  • write down information you learned during visits with your diabetes care team


Remember, your diabetes care needs and information may change over time. These tools will help you stay up to date and will help you keep your team connected.
