Diabetology

Diabetology is the clinical science of diabetes mellitus, its diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. It can be considered a specialised field of endocrinology; the field of diabetology has recently become very intensive and specialised, leading to the development of specialised doctors, called diabetologists.

Apart from regulating medication (e.g. insulin) dosage and timing, a diabetologist will also concern himself with the potential consequences of diabetes, e.g. retinopathy, nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy.
