When your body secretes too much insulin, your blood sugar levels are too high and that results in Diabetes mellitus.
The doctors at “Endocrinologist”, are dedicated to educating our patients and assisting them by creating lessons about the proper diet, insulin therapy and any additional information that is useful for managing diabetes. They stay on top of the proper care needed for each of their patients and make sure that the families are also well versed in appropriate care needs.
You will be provided with the best and most appropriate care for your specific needs. We work with patients who are pre- or "borderline" diabetics to more involved issues that require things like intensive insulin therapy, insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors.
Symptoms of Diabetes are:
Thirst and dry mouth
Itchy, red skin in the groin or vaginal area
