Start getting your modifiable risk factors under control today.
While there are risk factors you can’t change, such as family history, age and ethnicity, most of the responsibility for controlling diabetes falls within your control.
It’s time to take your health seriously. You’re making an effort to be healthy by not smoking and getting some exercise, but equally as important is knowing your blood pressure and glucose numbers. Commit to regular screenings and get help from your doctor if your results are elevated. If you need to lose weight, your doctor can help with that, too. Incorporate more fresh, unprocessed foods into your diet and find simple ways to boost activity, such as walking.
We encourage you to contact your local primary care physician should you have any questions. If you do not have a primary care physician or if you would like to be referred to a specialist, please call us at XXX-XXX-XXXX.
