Diabetes refers to a group of diseases that result in a high presence of glucose in the blood. Diabetes conditions can fall into Type I, in which symptoms appear severely and quickly, or Type II, in which symptoms may not initially be present. Both types of diabetes and the resulting high amounts of glucose in the bloodstream can lead to serious health issues. If you experience any of the following symptoms please visit one of our expert physicians:

  • Frequent urination
  • Extreme hunger
  • Increased thirst
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased frequency of infections

Risk factors for diabetes include age, weight, lifestyle and high blood pressure. Typical screenings for diabetes involve various blood and urine tests.

Diabetes treatment will depend on the type and severity. Consistently eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly are lifestyle choices that can help manage diabetes. Monitoring your blood sugar, regulating insulin and taking medication may also play a role in your management of diabetes.

Our skilled staff of doctors and nurses will provide expert medical care and attention to your diabetes management. Schedule a screening today to determine the best course of action that suits your lifestyle.
