Diabetes is a disease that causes glucose (sugar) to build up in the blood stream. And since glucose supplies our bodies with the energy required to do every day tasks, a variety of health problems can ensue if it’s not able to get into our cells.
Recent studies show that the incidence of diabetes is on the rise in the U.S. Our goal is to educate our patient community about managing or preventing this chronic condition and help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
