Diabetes care to help you reach your blood sugar goals
If you have diabetes, it can be challenging to juggle daily activities while making sure to manage your diet and blood sugar. We are here to help.
According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes affects millions of people, including more than 10 percent of people living in Michigan. Diabetes is a condition where your body can’t make enough or any insulin, causing high levels of sugar in your blood. Whether you are new to diabetes or have lived with it for years, our specialists can help you better manage your condition.
Whether you need help checking your blood sugar or understanding the latest technologies (insulin pens, insulin pumps or continuous glucose monitors), you’ll be cared for by our specially-trained team to help you reach your blood sugar goals. Bronson has been recognized by the Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists for its education programs and is certified by the Michigan Department of Public Health for diabetes care. This means that you will get diabetes self-management education and support reflective of the highest quality national standards.
