High Blood Sugar and Diabetes

High blood sugar and Diabetes are the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness and lower limb amputation. High blood sugar also increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Having uncontrolled high sugars can cause these complications earlier.  Lowering your blood sugar level reduces the risk.  The ACTIVE Diabetes Care Team helps patients with difficult to control diabetes reach their personal health goals.  Working with your doctor, our Board Certified Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist, and Nutritionist offer one-on-one extended visits to our patients and families to help you better understand:
  • Diabetes – what it is and how it affects the body
  • Nutritional awareness – the importance of diet and making good choices
  • Active living - why it is important to exercise or be active
  • A balanced approach to health
  • ​Identify and focus on individual challenges to reaching personal health goals
