Understanding Diabetes

Our team believes the best way of managing diabetes is to ensure the patients are well-aware of the condition, its consequences, and the treatment options.

Diabetes occur when your body can’t transport sugar to the cells to convert into energy, resulting in buildup of additional sugar in the bloodstream. Without the right treatment, diabetes can have a major impact on multiple tissues and organs in the body. Windermere Medical Group offers treatment and management of different types of diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes

  • When your immune system starts destroying the pancreatic cells where insulin is created.

Type 2 Diabetes

  • When your body resists insulin and faces a sugar buildup in your bloodstream.

Prediabetes

  • When your blood sugar increases but not enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes

  • When your blood sugar is high during your pregnancy due to insulin blocking hormones.

Every type of diabetes comes with a unique set of symptoms and requires a special treatment plan. We also offer primary care, internal medicine, family medicine, and other health care services to provide the right care for your overall wellness.
