Diabetes Management should include all of the following:

  • Education

  • Physical Activity

  • Nutrition

  • Weight Management

  • Medication to maintain controlled glucose (sugar) levels

  • Lifestyle Management

  • Blood Pressure control

Appointments will be scheduled every 3 months to monitor the above with blood work and urine done prior to appointment. Expect a foot exam and cholesterol check once per year usually occurring in the summer months. An eye exam should be done yearly to examine the health of the diabetic eye ( this is covered yearly by Ministry of Health for Diabetics )
