Today an estimate of 29 million have diabetes in the United States. Diabetes is a condition which elevates blood sugar level. Long term effects of high blood sugar leads to damaging vital organs.
Type 2 diabetes can be prevented with weight loss and exercise. Prediabetes is a condition that has elevated blood sugar but not enough for the diagnosis of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be treated with non insulin medications, weight loss and diet changes.
AT GHC Clinic we provide detail consultation with patients with diabetes. We also provide screening for prediabetes for individuals who are high risk for the disease.
Patient with diabetes should be checked for HbA1c, blood pressure, cholesterol regularly. Kidney function, urine test, complete foot exam and dilated eye exam should also be done annually.
