Diabetes is a serious disease, which, if not controlled, can be life threatening. It is often associated with long-term complications that can affect every system and part of the body.
Diabetes can, among other things, contribute to eye disorders and blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation, and nerve damage. It can affect pregnancy and cause birth defects, as well.
Although diabetes is a chronic and incurable disease (with the exception of gestational diabetes), with proper medical care, clinical therapies, diet, hygiene, and exercise, symptoms and complications can be successfully treated and managed.
Individual diabetic consultations are available Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. by appointment only. Enroll today for an appointment, or for additional information call Diabetic Education Services at South Central Regional Medical Center at (601) 426-4700.
