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 Henry Ford 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

Managing your diabetes by keeping your blood sugar levels under control helps to reduce your risk of having a stroke.
