Living Well with Diabetes

At Harbin Clinic, we know how daunting it can be to learn to live with diabetes. The lifestyle changes and new considerations can be hard to get used to, but we are here to help.

Diabetes occurs when the body does not properly create or use insulin, resulting in elevated blood glucose levels. If left unchecked, diabetes can lead to a host of complications including eye, kidney and nerve damage. With the right tools, you can keep your diabetes in check and live your best life.

“I believe in taking the time to help my patients become familiar with the changes they need to make when we encounter a diabetes diagnosis,” says Dr. John-Scott Carroll, Harbin Clinic Family Medicine physician in Rome.

“Proper nutrition and regular exercise are essential to maintaining healthy blood glucose levels,” says Dr. Jason Fields at Harbin Clinic Family Medicine Cartersville. “We are committed to helping our patients learn how to incorporate these healthy habits into their lives so that they can get healthier and stronger.”

Learning to plan low fat meals, read nutrition labels and practice proper food care can help you prevent or delay complications and stay one step ahead of your diabetes.

Don’t let diabetes keep you down. Make an action plan to stay happy and healthy in every way. It is important to learn techniques for stress management, problem solving and communication with your physician. With these tools, you can stay at the top of your game and on top of your diabetes.

We care completely about helping you develop the skills you need to manage your diabetes and live well and strong. To make an appointment with Diabetes Management Cartersville, call 470-490-6511. For Diabetes Management Rome, call 762-235-2420.
