Your healthcare team 

Your primary care or family physician (who may be a general practitioner or internist) will likely be at the centre of your diabetes healthcare team. Depending on your needs, your physician may refer you to other healthcare professionals who specialize in managing particular aspects of diabetes. To help your team better understand your individual needs, it’s best to plan ahead for every office visit.

What to take to every appointment

  • Your meter
  • Paper or mobile app (electronic) logbook
  • List of all medications and dosages
    Are you checking at the times recommended by healthcare professional(s)?
  • List of questions


Highlight your fasting, before-meal, and after-meal results.
