At NorthShore we believe in a team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrinology diabetes, with the patient as the most important member of the team. Your team is led by your diabetes endocrinologist and may also include skilled nurse practitioners, dietitians and nurses who specialize in diabetes education and care.
Our patients will be provided with the latest technology that their team deems appropriate for them, including insulin pumps and glucose sensors, as well as educational tools on how to monitor diabetes on a daily basis. By providing self-care options and working closely with primary care physicians, our staff’s goal is to create a healthier lifestyle for our patients, in which they can manage their diabetes comfortably and independently.
