At Mayo Clinic, doctors provide comprehensive care for people with diabetes. Diabetes is a long-term chronic condition that affects how your body uses blood sugar (glucose). Doctors trained in diabetes (endocrinologists) work with an integrated team of doctors trained in heart and blood vessel diseases (cardiologists), blood vessel surgery (vascular surgeons), heart surgery (cardiac surgeons) and other areas to treat diabetes and any related complications.
Doctors treat people with diabetes and develop an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs. Doctors, nurses, dietitians and others will provide you with education about diabetes and help you manage your condition.
Some people with diabetes may be eligible for a pancreas transplant. Doctors will evaluate you and determine if you're a candidate for a pancreas transplant.
