This book is for any one with diabetes or prediabetes. Diabetes office visit is about making better use of the knowledge, tools and medications that are available today in their doctors offices to prevent the complications of this disease.

As physicians and health care providers:

- WE know what the complications of diabetes are.
Increased risk of Heart attacks, strokes, nerve, kidney and eye damage
- WE know what the risk factors are that put us at risk of these complications.
- WE know that these risk factors can be controlled and that complications can be reduced and prevented.
- We also know from recent studies that only about 12 % of people with diabetes were able to achieve 3 target goals of an A1c< 7, BP 130/80,and LDL of < 100mg/dl

I believe that almost every person with diabetes can manage and correct all of the risk factors associated with diabetes and not have their lives disrupted by this disease.
