Your local psychologist is a medical professional who specializes in treating mental health and behavioural disorders. Research shows that managing a chronic condition such as diabetes can increase the risk of anxiety, stress or depression. If you have diabetes, you may benefit from working with a local psychologist. They may use techniques such as cognitive behavioural therapy or psychodynamic therapy to treat you. Whether you need help preventing lipohypertrophy or understanding the physical and mental benefits of a diabetes exercise program, your local psychologist can work with your local endocrinologist to create a comprehensive diabetes treatment plan.
Your local psychologist may work closely with your local endocrinologist. Seeing a local psychologist in conjunction with a physiotherapist is often a good idea to treat diabetes conditions requiring psychologist care.
