I am a long time diabetic and I have small vessel disease in my heart. My cardiologist seems to think I am fine, but the chest pain is pretty bad. Does anyone know a facility or doctor that treats SMD and if so where are they located? i live in Indianapolis IN
Those of us who volunteer for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation are not allowed to make doctor or hospital recommendations that might be seen as a JDRF endorsement. That being said, perhaps someone will post who has dealt with this issue in the nearby area. I would suggest that you contact JDRF at www.jdrf.org and ask to be contacted by the local chapter. They can put you in touch with local people who are either type 1 diabetics or are parents of type 1 folks, and you may find the recommendation you are looking for by making one-on-one contact at one of their meetings.
