Diabetes and Endocrinology at Ascension Saint Thomas
For diabetics dealing with daily challenges, swings in blood sugar levels, health complications, and everchanging energy levels, the diabetes care team at Ascension Saint Thomas deliver compassionate personalized care for:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gestational diabetes
Diabetes not only impacts your diet but can also play a part in your blood pressure, cholesterol, and stress level. If not taken care of, diabetes can lead to much more serious, even life-threatening, conditions. At the Diabetes Centers of Ascension Saint Thomas Health, we provide helpful resources including educational classes on how to manage your diabetes. Our specially trained care team educates and supports you. Together, we help you attain your personal nutrition, exercise and weight loss goals, and learn how to perform your daily diabetes care tasks.
Gestational diabetes care
If you are pregnant and have pre-existing or gestational diabetes, attending diabetes education is essential.
