Today, the number of people across the globe affected by diabetes is growing is soaring at an alarming rate. The disease is becoming so prevalent that it represents one of the most challenging public health problems of the 21st Century. According to statistics from the American Diabetes Association in just the United States, almost thirty million children and adults have the disease. At the office of The DOCS, we provide skilled and experienced care to help treat and manage diabetes along with other metabolic, hormonal and glandular disorders.
Diabetes is a complex metabolic disorder that impairs the body’s ability to produce or use insulin effectively to regulate blood sugar levels. The symptoms and early warning signs of diabetes include increased thirst and hunger (even after a meal), dry mouth, frequent urination or urinary tract infections, sudden weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision, and frequent headaches. Unfortunately, over time elevated blood sugar levels can cause damage throughout the body with many complications to one’s health and overall wellbeing. Diabetes contributes to the development of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, nerve impairment and medical issues in the extremities. For all these reasons, it’s essential to see an endocrinologist for the management and treatment of this condition.
In our office, we provide the knowledgeable and compassionate care you require for the treatment of diabetes as well as other metabolic, hormonal and glandular disorders. As your partner in care, we’ll measure and monitor your blood glucose levels as well as how they fluctuate during the and around mealtimes. We’ll also advise you on eating plans and recommend lifestyle changes to help you control your diabetes. Studies prove that a weight loss as little as 5% can reduce blood sugar levels.
At the office of The DOCS, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
