Does having diabetes mean that I am at higher risk for other medical problems? Should I start seeing other doctors regularly, such as an eye doctor?

Hello diabetes affects mainly kidneys. Eyes. Heart. Nerves and blood vessels so practically all body parts are at risk for disease anyway. Get retinal (eye) check everybyear along with kidney evaluation. Cardiac evaluation.
