Answer

Consultation with an endocrinologist is indicated in insulin resistance. Referral to a medical weight management program is usually needed. Consultation with a cardiologist is also usually indicated. Other specialists, such as a dermatologist, gynecologist, cardiothoracic surgeon, and ophthalmologist, may need to be consulted based on the nature of the disease and the prevailing pathology.
