The web-based survey polled 200 primary care physicians and 100 endocrinologists. On average, each doctor treated 239 patients per month. Endocrinologists who participated in the survey treated significantly more patients diagnosed with diabetes than primary care physicians, while primary care physicians had more patients deemed at high risk for developing diabetes.

"As a result, physicians spend less time with each patient and end up addressing only the most immediate aspects of diabetes care on a given visit rather than the broad spectrum of care they deserve," Dr. Peters said.

"Diabetes requires multidisciplinary care and a team-based approach for the best outcomes," Lana Vukovljak, Chief Executive Officer of the American Association of Diabetes Educators, said.

Physicians surveyed said they did not have adequate resources -- including
