The list of appropriate referrals includes but is not limited to patients with one of the following: difficulty achieving glycemic targets, diabetes complications, type 1 diabetes, insulin pump, frequent or severe hypoglycemia, cardiovascular comorbidities, steroid-induced hyperglycemia, or high glycemic variability. Please fax referrals to 902-473-5912.
