Diabetes Education Services
Committed to helping patients manage their condition to improve their health.
Diabetes occurs when the body can’t make energy from food and sugar stays in the blood instead of going into the cells. While type 1 and type 2 diabetes are the most common forms of diabetes, there is also gestational diabetes that affects many women while pregnant.
There is no cure for diabetes, but with careful lifestyle choices, people with diabetes can live long and productive lives. Good self-management of blood sugar and heart disease through food, medication, exercise, and stress management can significantly reduce or even prevent the complications of diabetes.
