Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that most often appears early in adolescence. This condition causes little to no insulin production from the pancreas leading to many medical problems. Healthy levels of insulin are required in order to fuel the body properly and maintain proper function.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a condition that develops overtime due to poor diet and lifestyle choices. This condition causes a lack of production in insulin, or a resistance to insulin in the body. Many people with type 2 diabetes feel the frequent need to urinate; hunger even after eating; chronic fatigue; blurred vision; and more. In some cases, there may not be any symptoms present, allowing the disease to go undetected.
Lifestyle Management
One of the most effective methods for treating diabetes is eating a healthy diet and living an active lifestyle. By following a diet that consists of low sugars and carbs, while incorporating daily physical activity into your life, you can significantly reduce the negative effects of diabetes. Our physicians can help you come up with a lifestyle management plan that gets you the best results.
Prescription Medication
Prescription medication can help to regulate blood sugar levels in those who are suffering from diabetes. While medication helps to get patients fast results, it works best when paired with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Our physicians can help you to explore your options for medication to treat your diabetes.
Patients living with type 1 diabetes require insulin in order to properly filter toxins from the body and to convert sugars into energy. In some cases, those suffering from type 2 diabetes may also be given insulin in order to properly regulate the blood glucose levels in their body to a safe level.
Glucose Tracking
Tracking the glucose levels in your blood will help to determine the severity of your diabetes, while also providing a method to evaluate the usefulness of medications and identify triggers for rapid changes to blood sugar levels. Many patients will be asked to track their glucose levels daily to manage their diabetes.
Kidney Monitoring
High blood glucose levels lead to problems with many different systems in the body. When these glucose levels remain high they can cause damage to the blood vessels in a diabetics kidneys, which can result in poor kidney health. Additionally, many of those suffering from diabetes will also have high blood pressure, which can also lead to damage of the kidneys.
Heart Health
High blood glucose caused from diabetes can cause damage to your blood vessels and the nerves that control your heart. The longer a patient lives with diabetes, the higher their chances become for developing heart disease. Additionally, those living with diabetes are more likely to develop heart disease at a young age than those without diabetes.
