LifeStyle Medical Centers offers counseling to help prevent diabetes or manage it. Learning how to manage diabetes is a crucial component in living a high quality of life while living with the disease.
If left untreated, diabetes can have serious and sometimes permanent effects on your body. These effects can include heart and kidney disease, nerve damage, amputations and blindness.
Our diabetes treatment services support those with pre-diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes. All types are characterized by high blood glucose (sugar) levels in the blood that result from the body’s inability or ineffectiveness in producing and using insulin, the hormone that helps to control blood glucose levels.
Even when treating chronic diseases like diabetes, it’s important to develop meal plans and strategies that work for you and your family.
If you think you may have pre-diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes, consider if you’ve experienced these symptoms:
- Always tired
- Always thirsty
- Always hungry
- Frequent urination
If so, we’re committed to helping you improve your symptoms, reduce your risk of long-term complications and manage your disease. Our team of doctors, nurse practitioners, dietitians and certified diabetes educators are ready to assist you in improving your quality of life by starting our diabetes treatment today.
