Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose or blood sugar levels are too high. This disease can potentially damage your eyes, kidneys and nerves and might lead to heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb.

  • Symptoms & Diagnosis

    If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, a doctor can order a simple blood test called an A1C to determine if you have diabetes.

    • Urinating often
    • Feeling very thirsty
    • Feeling very hungry, even though you are eating
    • Extreme fatigue
    • Blurry vision
    • Cuts or bruises that are slow to heal
    • Weight loss, even though you are eating more (Type 1)
    • Tingling, pain or numbness in the hands and/or feet
  • Types of Diabetes

    There are 3 main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational.

    Type 1 diabetes is thought to be caused by an autoimmune reaction that stops the body from making insulin. Only 5-10% of people with diabetes have type 1 and it is usually diagnosed in children, teens and young adults.

    With type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin well and can’t keep blood sugar at normal levels. Without enough insulin, glucose stays in your blood, causing damage to blood vessels and organs.

    Gestational diabetes develops in pregnant women who have never had diabetes, and usually goes away after your baby is born. If you have gestational diabetes, your baby could be at a higher risk for health problems and you have an increased your risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

    You can also have prediabetes, meaning that your blood sugar is higher than normal - but not high enough to be called diabetes. 1 in 3 people have prediabetes, which increases your risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

  • Specialized Treatment

    While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating diabetes, monitoring your blood sugar or glucose levels is key to effectively managing the disease and preventing future health issues.

    Treatment also can include insulin, non-insulin medications, dietary changes and weight loss. We combine the latest care practices with support to help you regain control of your health.

  • Diabetes Education & Support

Many people are surprised when they are diagnosed with a thyroid condition, as disease symptoms can be overlooked and often go unrecognized. Thyroid disorders can affect many different organs and cause an array of confusing and often misdiagnosed symptoms. Our team is here to help you live well.

    • Goiter
    • Graves’ disease
    • Thyroid cancer
    • Nodules

    Could it be your thyroid? Most are surprised to learn that such a tiny butterfly-shaped gland in the neck can affect other areas of their health. Some of the most common symptoms include:

    • Feeling tired
    • Gaining weight
    • Feeling cold
    • Muscle and joint weakness/aches
    • Hair loss
    • Itchy/dry skin

    The thyroid’s hormones regulate many vital body functions including:

    • Heart rate
    • Body temperature
    • Muscle strength
    • Bodyweight
    • Nervous systems
    • Menstrual cycles
    • Cholesterol levels

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become thinner. Many people are unaware that they have osteoporosis until they experience a bone break or fracture. The most common fractures are of the hip, wrist and spine.

  • Symptoms
  • Risk Factors & Diagnosis
  • Management & Treatment
  • Symptoms

    Usually there are no symptoms of osteoporosis, but you may notice these effects of the disease:

    • Loss of height (Getting shorter by an inch or more)
    • Change in posture ("hump" or curve in neck)
    • Shortness of breath (smaller lung capacity due to compressed disks)
    • Bone fractures
    • Pain in the lower back.
  • Risk Factors & Diagnosis

    Your risk for osteoporosis fractures increases with age, and here are some common risk factors:

    • Woman 65 or older
    • Man 70 or older
    • Small, thin bones
    • Family history
    • Lack of calcium or vitamin D in diet
    • Lack of exercise
    • Smoking
    • Excessive alcohol consumption

    If you have risk factors and are concerned about osteoporosis, get screened! Bone mineral density tests, also known as DEXA scans, are used to diagnose osteoporosis and predict the risks of future fractures.

  • Management & Treatment

    Osteoporosis may be prevented, and with proper therapy, it can be treated. Treatments for established osteoporosis may include exercise, vitamin and mineral supplements, and medications to strengthen your bones and slow bone loss. Together, we'll create a care plan that's best for you.
