- Nutrition for Diabetes
There’s truth in the well-known phrase, “You are what you eat.” Nutrition is key to controlling your diabetes: A proper diet can lead to weight loss, and helps maintain healthy blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels.
Our registered dietitian can assist you with shopping, meal planning and nutritional counseling.
Call Call863-419-2799 to learn more.
- Wound Care
High glucose levels over a long period of time can lead to nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor blood circulation. These conditions are common diabetes complications that make it hard for your skin to repair itself and causes wounds to heal slowly, or not at all.
If you have a wound that won’t heal, call our Center for Wound Care at Call863-422-8123.
