1 doctor agrees

In brief: Risk of diabetes

She is at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and should be tested for this probably on a yearly basis.
She would only need to see an endocrinologist if she was actually found to have type 2 diabetes that her primary doctor did not feel comfortable treating.
