Almost 30 million people in the United States have some type of diabetes. However, up to a third of these people are unaware that they have this deadly disease.
Simply put, diabetes prevents your body from using the foods you eat properly for energy. After eating, the level of sugar in the blood (glucose) rises and the pancreas secretes insulin. Insulin is the key to opening the cells of the body and letting sugar in. Once glucose is added, the muscles convert it into energy or store it as fat for later use.
Diabetes occurs when the body does not make enough insulin or does not use the insulin it produces correctly, or a combination of both. When you have diabetes, your body cannot move glucose from your blood into your cells, causing hyperglycemia (high blood sugar levels).
Geriatric and Health Services
Empathic geriatricians diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and conditions that require special treatment for elderly patients. Our goal is to help our patients age gracefully and make the most of their daily lives by serving as family physicians and Counselors.
We take the time to clearly explain your treatment plan to you so that you can better understand your treatment. We also coordinate with loved ones and caregivers to meet the special needs of older patients.
Health Screenings And Evaluations
Our geriatricians perform in-depth examinations of the physical, psychological and social needs of our elderly patients. Following the approach of the Mercy Care team, our team will coordinate with experts to manage conditions and develop the most effective plan of care for you. We also offer annual Medicare Wellness Assessments.
