About Diabetes

From 1980 through 2007 the number of Americans with diabetes more than tripled, from 6 million to 21 million. People with diabetes are at greater risk of heart disease, strokes, blindness, kidney disease and amputations. These risks are greatly reduced, however, when good control of blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol are maintained.

Our mission is to improve the health and quality of life for people living with diabetes, through management, education, advocacy and research. Whether diabetes is a new diagnosis or an ongoing health concern, we offer care and support with our inpatient and outpatient services.

Living with diabetes can be very challenging. But our outstanding, interdisciplinary team of highly experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, Certified Diabetes Educators (including nurses and dietitians) are here to help you get the most out of life.

Your diabetes care team will individualize a plan that includes medication, monitoring, lifestyle changes and education for adults with type 1or type 2 diabetes, newly diagnosed, poorly controlled or in need of long-term care and follow-up.
