Diabetes Center

If you have diabetes, you know that it can cause serious problems, such as eye, nerve, and kidney damage.  However, a study called the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) has proven that many people can stop or slow these problems for a long time with good diabetes care and control of blood sugar levels.

Your diabetes change over time, so the way you take care of it must change too.  That means you will have to match the level of therapy with the stage of your diabetes.  At every stage, you need a good nutrition and exercise plan, and you need to monitor your blood sugar level.  But the medication used to control your diabetes will probably change as time goes by.

We are here to help you manage your diabetes.
