In brief: Absolutely
There are many aspects of diabetes that need to be followed by a professional.
Among these are the control of the blood sugar as well as blood pressure and lipids (like cholesterol). One needs to be examined and tested for complications of diabetes and when found these complications need to be managed to slow further progression. Referral to other professional may be necessary.
