Diabetes is usually a lifelong condition, so Ascension's specialists are committed to providing comprehensive care to help reduce your symptoms and prevent diabetes-related complications. Our team of endocrinologists, advanced practice nurses and registered dietitians work with your primary care physician to evaluate your symptoms, perform diabetes tests and treat you with focused care. Your personalized treatment plan may include changes in diet and exercise, as well as medications to control blood sugar.
Ascension offers nationally recognized self-management programs to patients living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and those diagnosed with prediabetes. Sessions led by our certified diabetes instructors cover a host of topics such as preventing complications, monitoring blood glucose at home and guidelines for healthy eating (including tips for dining out).
We also offer specialized care and support for children with insulin-dependent juvenile diabetes (type 1) and mothers with pregnancy or postpartum issues.
