Diabetes Management

How Can We Help?

Every year, over 7 million Americans are pre-diabetic and do not know it.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (also known as glucose). Glucose is imperative to the health of the cells that make up your muscles and tissues. Being an important source of energy, glucose is also your brain’s power fuse. With diabetes, your body does not produce enough insulin (a hormone that disperses glucose throughout the body).

Symptoms, or primary causes of diabetes, vary by type – with Diabetes Type 1 and Diabetes Type 2 (most common). Regardless of which type, the disease can lead to excess sugar in your blood and, consequently, lead to serious health problems. At both Eagles Landing Family Practice & Eagles Landing Endocrinology, we can help you create and manage your diabetes care plan.

Diabetes Type 1

Diabetes Type 1

With type 1 diabetes, your pancreas produces little to no insulin. Though not as common as Type 2, the disease occurs most often in children or young adults – hence it’s other commonly known name, “juvenile diabetes.”

Diabetes Type 2

Diabetes Type 2

Type 2 is also a chronic disease but occurs when the body does not use insulin properly, which is referred to as insulin resistance. This causes glucose levels to spike or rise higher than normal.
