The Right Diabetes Care
Life after a diabetes diagnosis can be full and vibrant. All it takes is the right care. At AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach, formerly Florida Hospital New Smyrna, we believe the right care means taking a whole-person approach to your wellness. We aim to not only heal your body, but your mind and spirit, too. Supported by leading research, expert doctors, and ongoing, interactive patient education, we offer an integrated path to diabetes management that blends the science of medicine with the power of compassion. The result? A more active and fulfilling lifestyle for you.
Care That’s Personal
- Fast, Simple Prediabetes Screening
If you’re one of the 86 million Americans who are prediabetic, AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach, formerly Florida Hospital New Smyrna, will help you find out quickly and safely. Schedule an appointment with us and we'll give you one of our simple blood glucose screenings:
- A1C — A common blood test for diagnosing type 1 and type 2 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 afterward
You can make a few basic changes to your lifestyle around food and exercise that can help you prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. We'll make sure you know what they are, and how to make them a part of your life.
- A Diabetes Management Plan That Puts You First
You’re more than a patient. You’re a person. And at AdventHealth, we never forget that. While it’s true that we offer some of the most advanced diabetes treatments in New Smyrna Beach, like leading-edge insulin dosing devices, and access to some of the finest clinical minds in the field, it's our philosophy that truly sets us apart. We treat you first and foremost as a whole human being.
That means we educate you. We can provide you with a community, keep you updated on which lifestyle choices help, and which to avoid, and even host activities and events like cooking demonstrations, so you can see firsthand how to put your knowledge about diabetes management into practice. We won’t just tell you what to do. We’ll support you in every capacity — physically, mentally, and emotionally — so you can enjoy a healthier, more active lifestyle.
