Diabetes Management Center
The Diabetes Management Center at Saint Michael’s Medical Center provides a full range of diagnostic, treatment, education, and prevention services for diabetes, a chronic disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. While the main treatment for diabetes is exercise and diet to lower high blood glucose levels, the Center will help you learn such basic diabetes management skills as:
- How to test and record your blood sugar, or glucose, level.
- What to eat, when and how often.
- How to take any medications, if any are prescribed.
- Where to obtain diabetes supplies and how they should be stored.
For more information, please call 973-877-2885.
Despite such potential complications as eye problems or blindness, sores and infections of the foot and skin, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, nerve and kidney damage, Saint Michael’s can help you learn how to control and live with the disease and stay up-to-date on new research and treatments.
