Diabetology is the clinical science of diabetes mellitus, its diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. It can be considered a specialised field of endocrinology.
The term diabetologist refers to any physician, including endocrinologists, whose practice and/or research efforts are concentrated mainly in diabetes care.
Apart from regulating medication (e.g. insulin) dosage and timing, a diabetologist will also concern themselves with the potential consequences of diabetes.
e.g. retinopathy, nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy.
