Preventing & Managing Diabetes

Diabetes can be prevented or managed with good blood sugar control. Those who have diabetes can expect better health and fewer restrictions with the help of good medical care, education and positive lifestyle changes.

The Allegiance Diabetes Center provides screenings for early detection of diabetes. We detect and treat complications of diabetes, offer nutrition counseling and make medical assessments relating to:

  • Diabetes medications and insulin pumps
  • Cholesterol
  • Thyroid and kidney function
  • Nutrition and exercise
  • High and low blood sugar
  • Psychosocial health
  • Foot health
  • Issues relating to child and teen diabetes

Severe chest pain is not always present with a heart attack, especially for older adults, people with diabetes and women. They may experience sudden shortness of breath, coughing, dizziness, fatigue or weakness. Don’t take a chance. Call 9-1-1.
