Dr. Costello is a board-certified endocrinologist, with extensive experience treating diabetes and associated conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and neuropathy (nerve disease). During the pandemic, we have continued the same level of quality care through telemedicine. Available technology allows Dr. Costello to view blood sugar meter results, insulin pump settings and reports, and continuous glucose monitor reports.
Often when people with Type 2 diabetes enter a weight loss program, they can discontinue some of their medications (including insulin!). During medical visits, Dr. Costello can closely monitor blood sugars and adjust insulin and oral medications as needed. We can use continuous glucose monitors (“CGM”) to track blood sugars, allowing for the precise adjustment of medications and protection against low blood sugar.
