Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood and urine.

Poorly controlled diabetes increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic illnesses. It is essential for patients with diabetes to practice good self-management and work with your doctor to achieve this goal. You can reduce your risk of complications by successful control of your disease and delaying or preventing the onset if this disease.

Short and Long Term Goals:

  • Follow the care management plan your doctor has given you
  • Check blood sugars as directed and keep a diary of the results
  • Take the medication that has been prescribed for you
  • Follow a diabetic friendly diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Maintain your hemoglobin A1C under 7
  • Have a yearly eye exam
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Smoking Cessation
