Diabetes

Prediabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)

Prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal. You may be prediabetic if you have a family history of diabetes, are overweight, have high blood pressure and you are physically inactive. Patients with prediabetes are at higher risk of developing T2DM and cardiovascular disease.

Patients with type 2 diabetes have a problem using insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. In T2DM, your pancreas cannot regulate insulin effectively to keep your blood glucose levels normal. Most patients with T2DM have a history of prediabetes and its risk factors.

We use a combination of examination, laboratory and special studies to diagnose you and rule out other conditions. Some patients already have a diagnosis, and we can quickly enter into a treatment plan. Prediabetes and T2DM respond favorably to lifestyle changes. Your treatment plan will include a personalized dietary prescription to address your individual issues and health goals and an exercise program to promote healthy insulin activity and a healthy weight. We monitor your diet, exercise and laboratory values to determine your specific needs over time. Contact us to find out more.
