Type 2 Diabetes Defined
Type 2 diabetes, the most common type of diabetes, is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes mainly from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose get into your cells to be used for energy. Learn more here.

Topics included in this education program include carbohydrates and meal planning, controlling low and high blood sugar levels, medication information, foot care, dealing with stress, traveling with diabetes, and avoiding complications.
Insulin Pump Training
The Diabetic Care Clinic will help you learn how to manage your diabetes using an insulin pump. Follow-up monitoring and education is also available.
Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM)
- Using a CGM is an effective accessory to managing diabetes, it provides information for patients with diabetes and their providers to make accurate treatment decisions.
- A CGM gives patients a complete picture of their blood sugar level, unlike a regular blood sugar meter that provides only a single reading with each fingerstick.
Annual follow-up is a vital part of managing your diabetes. This is a great time to review education and test results to help you continue to manage your diabetes long-term. These appointments are covered by many insurance companies, including Medicare.
With education and support, you can manage diabetes and change your life.
