I am so new to this I just want to ask a question. With being a type two diabetic do I have to look forward to a lot of doctor visits. I am paying out of pocket. I have no insurance at my job since I am a pain intern. That is the only bad thing about my job. I had my initial visit. I got blood work this Friday and I got to go back that next Tuesday for a check up. How often do diabetics usually have to visit the doctors.
