Does anyone know a good endo in the Las Vegas area? I have been going to my internist for the last 5 years.

Hi folks! I'm a Seattle native snowbirding in Peoria, AZ. I need a good endo near Sun City/Peoria/Glendale. I'm an Insulin Dependent Type 2 and use a Minimed insulin pump, so I'd love to find an endo with some knowledge of pumping!

My internal doc in Seattle is pretty clueless about the pump. Unfortunately, my glucose levels are tweaking out due to some recent med changes because of insurance.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks Jerry. I think I missed their last one due to a business trip. They don't meet very often I'm afraid.

Try and look for the Adult Type 1 network. They have some local events.

I really want to do something with other T1 diabetics near Phoenix, AZ without having to be a health nut. Anyone have any ideas? I don't mind walking but it seems there's more structured around running or cycling.

Love the weather, 24 hours in the Old Pueblo was perfect.
Tucson Tour de Cure 2 weeks away March 4.
