Currently, about 29 million people in the United States have diabetes. Numbers of patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are growing. Although these numbers may seem worrisome, advances in care and self-management of the disease now allow patients to live fairly normal lives.
Several UNCPN practices offer excellent diabetes care. Our family practices evaluate and manage this chronic illness. We also offer nutrition counseling so that patients can start managing the disease by making healthy food choices.
