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.
"Tried Ultraslim therapy as well as face/neck Clearlift treatments - totally professional services and the "right equipment" including laser skin tightening and a vibration plate to drain the lymphatic system of fats for Ultraslim treatments. As a side note: for Ultraslim patients, I recommend that investing in a home-version of vibration plates from Amazon or other retailers...25 Hz plates is the minimum for good muscle gain but 15 Hz for basic lymphatic draining is fine and must be used daily for several months. Kelly initiated this with a very professional package with nice touches - and did not hard sell anything. She offers really good soft skills and is quite expert in this field. Natalia was very considerate when she took over and Karen did fabulous work with the skin tightening - I can't believe that she could work this rigorously (plus she is wonderful to work with....). Most importantly, the team listened to what I wanted - they gave me extra rounds for the lower flanks/back in lieu of the upper torso per my wishes to focus on fat loss where I needed it most. Ultraslim results: fair enough with over 12" overall loss but it looks better on paper than in real life despite some notably good changes. That's because I have loose skin and visceral fat (for the latter I did nine Emsculpt treatments at the Forever Young Anti-Ageing Center in Wisconsin - they get an honorable mention due to their pricing). For Clearlift - I got a very good deal initially for the face/neck - and was so impressed by the work put in by Karen that I took up another package for three additional treatments. It's instructive to note that I was planning to go to another clinic for more Clearlift treatments as they had a great promotion - but Karen was so artful and passionate and "went the extra mile" that I decided to stay here. Finally - I've been going in for diabetes treatments with Ashish Patel and some other doctors before (Dr. Mehta, Dr. Kulkarni) - all were helpful and professional and ordered the right tests. Costs for medical tests/blood tests are also totally reasonable unlike in hospitals - and services by the facility nurses (like Nazia) were a positive experience. No complaints here - this is a very professional, reasonably priced healthcare provider."- S.M. / Google / Oct 21, 2021
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.
