Diabetes

 

The Diabetes Clinic at St. Joseph’s Internal Medicine Department diagnoses and treats patients with all types of diabetes. Our goal is to work with patients and referring physicians to help manage or control diabetes.

 

For patients with difficult-to-control diabetes, our diabetes specialists believe in a multi-factorial approach. We personalize each patient experience, and help them find the resources that are best for them to manage their diabetes. Providing data to patients in a non-judgmental approach has allowed us great successes in patient outcomes.

Diabetes Resources Available

Patients at St. Joseph's Diabetes Clinic have a number of resources available to them, including:

iPro Continuous Glucose monitor
This device is sent home with the patient for three days. It monitors their blood sugar every five minutes, providing data on their personal pattern of glucose highs and lows.

Insulin Pump Training
An insulin pump can help patients avoid highs and lows and create a better match between insulin, food and activity. Lowering their A1C is great for overall health and using only one type of insulin in a pump helps them save money on insulin. Syringes are not required and patients insert a new pump site every three days instead of injecting insulin three to five times a day.

Free Glucose Monitors
A variety of glucose monitors are available for patients in the office. Our highly knowledgeable staff can help patients choose the best monitor for them.
