Diabetes Management Services

Diabetes can cause painful complications that affect your daily life, especially when combined with another injury or illness. Our expert clinical care provides the support you need to improve blood glucose control and reduce these complications. 

Our interdisciplinary care approach provides a team of experts in diabetes management. Our goal is to help avoid complications and maintain healthy lifestyle behavior such as maintaining appropriate weight, eating a balanced diet and increasing physical activity, as you’re able.

We may be able to help you do this if you’re experiencing:  

  • Cardiovascular changes
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Hypertension
  • Nephropathy
  • Painful neuropathy

Our hospitals use the latest in glycemic management—basal bolus insulin therapy—which combines fast-acting insulin with longer-lasting insulin to balance your levels. This approach prevents highs and lows and requires fewer finger pricks. Our care is adapted from the standards of the American Diabetes Association and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists. 

When you’re experiencing diabetic complications, we provide: 

  • Nutrition therapy and education from a Registered Dietitian
  • Healthy lifestyle training for weight reduction and stress relief 
  • Physical therapist supervised exercise to sharpen your abilities 
  • Disease management education to minimize risk of future complications
  • Instruction in self-management strategies such as:
    • Blood sugar monitoring
    • Hypo- and hyperglycemia symptom recognition
    • Medication management
    • Insulin pump management
    • Consistent carbohydrate meal planning
  • Medication monitoring by a clinical pharmacist for oral and insulin medications to prevent negative medication interactions 

Through the treatment options above, we hope to improve your glucose control and reduce related complications, propelling you to a healthier daily life.
