Diabetes Care

Diabetes Educators are healthcare professionals who focus on helping people with diabetes and people at risk for diabetes.

Diabetes often goes undiagnosed for a long time because the symptoms may be absent or vague. Some symptoms include thirst, increased urination, weight loss, fatigue, and blurred vision.

You can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes through a healthy lifestyle. Change your diet, increase your level of physical activity, maintain a healthy weight…with these positive steps, you can stay healthier longer and reduce your risk of diabetes.
