Our Diabetes Care Services
The exact cause of diabetes is unknown, but heredity and diet are believed to play a role in the development of the disease. And over time, higher than normal blood sugar levels can lead to high blood pressure, vision loss or blindness and even harm to your heart.
But, there's good news, too. Research shows that if your blood sugar level is kept as normal as possible, you may prevent or delay serious health problems in the future.
We can help you learn how to keep your blood sugar at an acceptable level. You'll learn about diet, weight loss and other self-care that will help you function normally. And while your treatment will be specific to the type of diabetes you’ve been diagnosed with, our scope of diabetes care services includes:
For those who are dealing with wound complications due to diabetes, we also offer wound care on the second floor of Hunt Regional Medical Center.
