Work With Knowledgeable Diabetes Experts

Diabetes is a serious condition that is currently incurable, but it can be controlled. When you have diabetes, your body doesn’t properly use the energy from the food that you eat. This causes your blood sugar to be too high. It has been proven that controlling blood sugar can reduce complications from diabetes. The following tools are useful for controlling diabetes:

  • Knowledge of diabetes
  • Appropriate meal plans
  • Regular exercise
  • Correct medication
  • Blood-sugar monitoring
  • Behavioral change goals
  • Continuous Glucose Monitoring
  • Insulin Pumps

At Baxter Health, we provide educational resources for individuals and families on how to properly manage diabetes. We help our patients avoid the more serious complications of the disease and enjoy a better quality of life.
