Psychologists are doctors of the mind.
Psychologists know that diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the USA. They also know that this fact can frighten many diabetics. Psychologists work to relieve anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders from diabetics. They help people with eating disorders because of diabetes. However, it is important to remember that while BEATING DIABETES, it is important to not let your numbers define you. Psychologists help remind us of this. They also help us recognize and try to reverse negative aspects of relationships formed because of a mindset gained after being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Psychologists are great because they give you one on one care and help you work through the mental aspects of Type 2 Diabetes.
