Diabetes affects an estimated 21 million people nationwide. It is a chronic disease characterized by high blood sugar caused when the body is unable to produce or properly use the hormone insulin, which is needed to convert sugars, starches, and other foods into energy. Our goal in diabetes care is to help people achieve the optimal balance they need to manage their condition and feel the best they can to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
Recent research shows that some long-term damage to the body may
already have occurred when pre-diabetes is discovered. According to the
Center for Disease Control, an estimated 41 million adults, ages 40 to
74, have pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes does not have to become Type 2 diabetes. With healthy
lifestyle changes, blood sugars can return to normal levels.
