A condition characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from the body's inability to use blood glucose for energy. In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas no longer makes insulin and therefore blood glucose cannot enter the cells to be used for energy. In type 2 diabetes, either the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body is unable to use insulin correctly.

I believe that with personalized treatment, education and care each patient can become better managers of their own health. The entire staff at the Diabetes Metabolic Center shares this viewpoint and understands that for patients with diabetes, endocrine and metabolic disorders, one ounce of prevention is definitely worth more than one pound of cure.
