Work With Knowledgeable Diabetes Experts
Diabetes is a serious condition that is currently incurable, but it can
be controlled. When you have diabetes, your body doesn’t properly
use the energy from the food that you eat. This causes your blood sugar
to be too high. It has been proven that controlling blood sugar can reduce
complications from diabetes. The following tools are useful for controlling diabetes:
- Knowledge of diabetes
- Appropriate meal plans
- Regular exercise
- Correct medication
- Blood-sugar monitoring
- Behavioral change goals
At Baxter Regional Medical Center, we provide educational resources for
individuals and families on how to properly manage diabetes. We help our
patients avoid the more serious complications of the disease and enjoy
a better quality of life.
