I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in September. I had a follow up appointment with my Doctor who is a DO and not an edocronologist. My A1c is 6.1 and all my blood work came out fantastic. I have lost about 30 lbs too. I take low doses of amyril and metphormin. My daily BG is always in the 80s & 90s, with an occasional 120 or so. Should I also go see an endocronologist or is it not necessary? If I don't need to, when does one start going to see one?

Why don't you keep your present doctor for the time being but see an endocrinologist for a second opinion. If you are more impressed with the endo then stick with him/her. Maybe your current doctor is quite good but you deserve a chance with an endo, just in case.
