Helping Take Control of Your Diabetes

Continuous Glucose Monitoring

A continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a relatively new FDA regulated device used for monitoring blood glucose on a continual basis by people with either type I or type II diabetes. It uses a small electrode placed under the skin and held in place by an adhesive. Understanding these levels on a continuous basis helps us to better administer proper doses of insulin when needed.

Metabolic Measurement Screening

People with Diabetes have abnormal metabolism and these tests can help to make the Diabetic metabolism work in a whole new way.

Metabolic tests include: measuring the number of calories burned when at rest, known as RMR, and your VO2 Max, which refers to the body's maximum ability to consume oxygen during exercise.

Blood Glucose Checks

Glucose tests exist to estimate blood sugar levels to see how fast your body is able to normalize changed glucose levels.

This is a fundamental baseline test for people with Diabetes – or those who are being diagnosed for Diabetes. The tests include:

Oral Glucose-Tolerance Test – After your blood is drawn at the clinic, you drink a syrupy glucose solution and have your blood drawn again at 30 to 60 minute intervals for up to three hours to see how your body is handling the glut of sugar.

Fasting Blood Sugar - After fasting overnight, you have your blood drawn at an early morning visit to the clinic and tested to see if your blood sugar is in the normal range.

Two-Hour Postprandial Test - This blood test is done at the clinic two hours after you have eaten.

Retinopathy Screening

Digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to take pictures of the inside of your eye. This helps doctors assess the health of your retina and helps them to detect and manage health conditions such as diabetes-related macular degeneration.

HgbA1c Labwork

The hemoglobin HbA1c test indicates your average blood sugar level over the past 2 to 3 months. It's also called a glycated hemoglobin test. People who have diabetes need this test regularly to see if their levels are staying within range.

Nerve Conduction Screening

Also known as a nerve conduction study, the procedure measures how quickly electrical signals move through your peripheral nerves. People with Diabetes usually develop nerve damage due to the inflammation of the capillaries, so understanding the extent of this complication is very important for proper treatment.
