• Diabetic Management

    Educating and supporting patients with diabetes

  • Diabetes affects about 30 million Americans, and a condition known as prediabetes affects another 86 million, according to the American Diabetes Association. About 5 percent of diabetes cases are Type 1, once known as juvenile diabetes, in which the body doesn’t produce insulin, which is needed to help the body transform sugar to energy. The more common Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body builds up resistance to insulin, which then interferes with the body’s ability to process sugar.

    Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., and the condition can lead to heart disease, foot problems, stroke, kidney disease, eye disease and some skin conditions. The disease’s symptoms are difficult to detect, and the best way to monitor for diabetes is with a blood test prescribed by your doctor.

    The Diabetic Clinic at Froedtert South employs a team of doctors, nurse educators, clinical pharmacists, dieticians and social workers. The clinic educates and supports patients with diabetes by helping with:

    • Meal planning
    • Developing exercise programs
    • Prescribing medication
    • Treating diabetes-related problems
    • Monitoring blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure

    The Diabetic Clinic treats patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and with gestational diabetes. It offers an insulin pump program.

    The clinic provides complete evaluation and treatment for all diabetic conditions and their complications for patients of any age. Our specialists work closely with the family physician and send full reports after each visit.
