Diabetes expert witnesses may have varying areas of focus within the medical field, as the disease is treated and studied in several different practices. Diabetes expert witnesses are usually experienced with practicing internal medicine, nutrition and diet, and podiatry, as each of these medical areas pertains to the treatment and care of diabetes and would be affected if left untreated.
Diabetes is a disease occurring when an individual’s blood sugar remains at an unhealthy high rate during an extended amount of time, which results from an imbalance of insulin levels in which they are either too low or failing to properly respond to body cells at a natural rate. Like each type of disease, diabetes may become the center of a lawsuit if an issue arises during treatment, such as medical malpractice, providing false information to a patient, neglecting a patient during his or her treatment, prescribing the wrong medication, making an error during diabetes-related surgery, or encountering an error or discrepancy regarding healthcare insurance.
Since medication is often used in the treatment and prevention of diabetes, expert witnesses in this area are often from a pharmaceutical background. The chemistry involved with diabetes treatment, as well as drug research, drug development, and the patent laws involved with the intellectual property of pharmaceuticals, may each be relevant in the event of a court case related to diabetes.
