Diabetes

More than 26 million americans suffer from diabetes.

Diabetes will often go undiagnosed until the symptoms are severe. If you experience unusual weight gain, excessive thirst, blurred vision, frequent infections, extreme hunger (even after eating), irritability, blood sugar issues, chronic fatigue, low or high blood pressure, or numbness and tingling in hands and feet, these could be red flags that you are pre-diabetic or diabetic. Like many diagnoses, most people often feel that after they have been diagnosed with diabetes that it is a life sentence.

There are two types of diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is most prevalent, effecting about 90 percent of diabetics.  It is defined as chronic high blood sugar and is 100% reversible.

Type 1 diabetes is also called juvenile onset diabetes, an autoimmune condition that occurs in a small percentage of the population. In this case, the immune system attacks the pancreatic cells that make insulin, therefore Type 1 diabetics have to supplement insulin for the rest of their life.

We offer a variety of advanced testing to determine the cause of the disease. After evaluation of the patient, several tests are run to determine the best plan for care.

We work with local patients in the greater Pittsburgh area, as well as virtually with patients across the United States and around the world.

Now accepting new patients.
