What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a medical condition that interferes with the body's ability to regulate normal blood glucose (sugar) levels. In the absence of professional medical care, diabetes can increase the risk of other health concerns, including heart disease, kidney problems, vision difficulties, and nerve damage. The primary care physicians at Horizon Medical Center offer their years of experience in diagnosing and helping patients manage type 1 (insulin-dependent), type 2, and gestational diabetes. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or believe the condition may be affecting your health, please contact our Schaumburg, IL family medicine clinic to schedule a diabetes screening or to review your treatment options.

How Is Diabetes Treated?
As a chronic condition, diabetes must be well-managed as high glucose levels, over time, can damage organs and other tissues. A number of factors can elevate the risk of diabetes, such as familial history, obesity, high blood pressure, and poor nutrition. Some of the most common symptoms of diabetes include high blood sugar (hyperglycemia), frequent urination, and excessive thirst. However, many patients with diabetes have no symptoms, making it essential to undergo regular screenings. Blood work is usually performed in our on-site lab to help our Schaumburg, IL physicians diagnose diabetic conditions. Diabetes is treated based on individual needs, which may entail regulating blood glucose through insulin, oral medications, diet, or exercise.
