Diabetes Care

When the body doesn’t use insulin properly, blood glucose levels may become too high. This may lead to diabetes, a disease that affects people of all ages. In fact, 25.8 million adults and children have been diagnosed with diabetes in America.

The complications associated with diabetes are very serious and can include heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness and amputation. The good news is that diabetes can be managed when diagnosed early and treated properly. Call (903) 877-7911 to make an appointment with UT Health North Campus Tyler diabetes experts.

 

Managing Diabetes

Our physicians and medical staff focus on diagnosing and treating diabetes, as well as providing resources for education and lifestyle changes. We are committed to giving patients the tools needed to effectively manage diabetes and avoid severe complications.

Our Center for Diabetes Care offers a series of free diabetes education courses four times every year. The sessions cover topics such as meal planning, glucose monitoring, exercise, medications, insulin administration and foot care. We teach patients how to administer insulin and how to manage insulin pumps. Each Empower Diabetes session is held in the Hudnall Auditorium.

Additional services also include individual visits with a physician, physician assistant, dietitian, and diabetes educator.
