Diabetes is a complicated disease that requires patients to manage its effects on a daily basis. This can be done through healthy eating and drinking habits, staying active, monitoring blood sugar levels, and taking prescribed medications. Left uncontrolled, diabetes can have a negative impact on a patient’s eyesight, heart and blood vessels, kidneys, gums and teeth, and gastrointestinal tract. People who suffer from diabetes are twice as likely to develop heart problems than those who do not have the condition. Also, diabetes is the number one cause of kidney failure and the number one cause of new vision blindness in adults across the United States.
Fortunately, the chances of developing these complications drastically diminish once diabetes management is implemented. This is where we come in. We will teach you how to help control your diabetes and its symptoms while simultaneously providing you with effective medication especially for you. Our endocrinologists understand that no two patients are the same which is why it would not make sense to prescribe the same treatment plan to everyone. The medications that are prescribed and the educational programs are customized for each and every one of our patients. At Palm Beach Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists, you can be sure that you are getting the personalized care and attention you need and deserve.
Our comprehensive treatment plans are effective in large part because of their educational component. We provide our patients with the tools and information necessary to successfully control their diabetes. Our personalized treatment programs include disease information as well as customized healthy eating lifestyles and exercise training.
Through patient education and training, we can help you:
