Abstract:
Diabetes Mellitus is one of the leading chronic diseases in the United States as well as in the world. It is a disease that becomes progressively more difficult to manage as time goes by with each patient. It costs the patient as well as the public. It costs in terms of health as well as monetary expenses. Studies have shown that better preventive care can decrease complications and help the patient live a longer, healthier life. Providers should consider more frequent office visits for patients with elevated HbA1c levels as this offers not only an opportunity for the provider to assess the patient and make needed changes in care but also gives the patient time to ask questions, gain clarifications on unclear topics and increases the patient’s participation in his or her healthcare.
