Endocrine Society Comments on Questions from the National Clinical Care Commission

February 03, 2020

To:Linda Harris, Designated Federal Officer, National Clinical Care Commission 

"Despite the vital role of endocrinologists in the care of patients with chronic diseases, there are currently fewer than 4,000 clinical endocrinologists in the United States to care for the more than 100 million potential patients who suffer from diabetes and prediabetes alone. Prevention of type 2 diabetes is a top policy priority because slowing the number of new cases of diabetes is vital for decreasing the human and economic burden of diabetes in America. Scientific research has demonstrated conclusively that type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in adults with prediabetes through both community-based and online settings."
