Diabetes is an illness which occurs as a result of problems with the production and supply of insulin in the body. Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, a form of sugar. We use glucose as a source of energy to provide power for our muscles and other tissues. Our bodies transport glucose in our blood. In order for our muscles and other tissues to absorb glucose from our blood, we need a hormone called insulin. Without insulin, our bodies cannot obtain the necessary energy from our food.
An individualized program is designed to achieve specific goals in regard of glycemic control. We provide innovative, collaborative, supportive treatment that is focused on the needs of the individual patient resulting in increased independence and quality of life with diabetes.
