At the Right Time
- Catching Diabetes Before It Happens
You might be able to stop diabetes before it happens. If you’re one of the 84.1-million Americans living with prediabetes, the key is early detection. We can help. Through a combination of clinicians and researchers, leading technologies, and partnerships with forward-thinking providers in diabetes care, together we can catch the disease when it matters most and help prevent it from progressing.
From genetics, to lifestyle, to pregnancy, there are many factors that could put you at risk for a diabetes diagnosis. But don’t trouble yourself with worry or guesswork. Let us clarify where you stand with a range of tests, including:
- A1C – A common blood test for diagnosing type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
- Autoimmunity Checks – Tests how your immune system is functioning.
- C Peptide Screenings – Helps us predict type 1 diabetes.
- Casual Plasma Glucose Test – Random screening for blood sugar levels.
- Fasting Plasma Glucose Test – Requires you to refrain from food or drink for eight hours.
- Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) – We’ll give you glucose and test your levels afterwards.
From there, we’ll guide you toward identifying the disease, curbing it, and getting back to living life to the fullest.
- Diabetes Management
A diabetes diagnosis doesn’t have to put your life on hold. With a few smart lifestyle changes, you can continue living a life that’s as rich, fulfilling, and enjoyable as ever. Our team is dedicated to giving you the tools, support, and educational resources to make that a reality. When you’re in the comfort of our hospital, we’ll use advanced glucose-management systems, like the EndoTool, to accurately recommend an insulin dosage that's just right for you.
Once you leave our hospital, we’re still here to help. We offer heart-healthy meal plans, activity programs to strengthen your body and mind, and advanced diabetes management devices, like the Glytec Glucommander™, to ensure you get the right dosage of insulin at the right time. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to keep your diabetes in check, and your well-being on track. If you are interested in talking to one of our doctors about your diabetes, or would like to learn more about our educational program, call 813-615-7620, or contact us online today.
