Advocating for yourself to your provider can be overwhelming, but self-advocacy is important for making sure you’re getting the care you deserve. Most clinics have patient advocates that are available to join you during appointments. You can tell them your concerns and have them bring it up during the appointment. Whether you’re newly diagnosed or just need some support bringing up your concerns on your own, use these cards at your next doctor appointment to make sure you’re being your best advocate! No one should ever settle for mediocre type 2 diabetes (T2D) care.
