Diabetic Care in Darke County

Diabetes is an endocrine disorder where blood sugar levels remain higher than normal. Diabetes must be diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, because elevated blood sugar levels can damage vital organs like the heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and blood vessels. Once you have diabetes, it will not go away – it is a chronic (ongoing) condition you will have for life. However, you can control diabetes through personal education and lifestyle changes.

The American Diabetes Association recommends that individuals with diabetes maintain good blood glucose control to prevent or lessen the effects of long-term complications. It is up to you to control your diabetes by eating right, exercising, and losing excess body weight. You may also need to take medication prescribed by your physician.

Our board-certified endocrinologists at Wayne HealthCare can help you manage your diabetes so you can live life to the fullest. We also encourage you to take advantage of our various diabetes programs and educational services at the hospital so you can understand the chronic endocrine condition and control your diabetes well.
