Diabetes Evaluation and Management

What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the body is unable to properly regulate blood glucose levels, leading to high levels of sugar in the blood. At Arrae Health, our expert healthcare team takes a comprehensive approach. We begin by assessing the patient’s medical history, including any known risk factors for diabetes such as family history, age, obesity, or previous gestational diabetes. Additionally, we carefully evaluate the patient’s symptoms, conduct a physical examination, and order specific laboratory tests.

  • We recognize the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes. Our team consists of primary care physicians, endocrinologists, registered dietitians, diabetes educators, and other healthcare professionals who work collaboratively to develop a personalized care plan for each patient.

Our Diabetes Services at Arrae Health:

Education guidance:
Our diabetes management strategies focus on lifestyle modifications, including healthy eating, regular physical activity, weight control, and monitoring blood glucose levels. We provide our adult patients with extensive education on handling diabetes, including skills such as blood glucose monitoring, medication administration, and recognizing signs of hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia.

Laboratory Testing:
The diagnostic criteria for diabetes are based on blood glucose levels. A fasting plasma glucose test, an oral glucose tolerance test, or a hemoglobin A1C test are commonly used to determine the presence of diabetes.

Insulin Management:
For patients with type 1 diabetes, who are unable to produce insulin, insulin therapy is necessary. Our specialized team helps patients understand the various insulin delivery options available, such as insulin pens, insulin pumps, or continuous glucose monitoring systems. We guide our patients in selecting the most suitable method and provide comprehensive education on insulin administration and adjusting dosage.

For individuals with type 2 diabetes, oral medications or injectable medications may be prescribed to improve insulin production or enhance the body’s utilization of insulin. Our healthcare professionals closely monitor the effectiveness of these medications and make adjustments as needed to achieve optimal blood glucose control.

Preventive Services:
We offer preventive services such as diabetes screenings for at-risk individuals. Early detection enables timely intervention and potential lifestyle modifications to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes.
