Diagnosing and Treating Diabetes
To diagnose diabetes, healthcare providers use fasting blood sugar tests, random blood sugar tests and glucose tolerance tests. After the initial diagnosis, your healthcare provider may conduct further testing to determine the specific type of diabetes.
Insulin is used to treat Type 1 diabetes. The healthcare provider works with the patient to determine the specific type and amount of insulin to manage insulin levels.
For Type 2 diabetes, changes in diet and exercise can greatly impact diabetes. Some patients need insulin in addition to lifestyle changes. We work with patients to monitor and manage diabetes treatment. We also offer weight loss and obesity treatment options to aid in diabetes management.
