Diabetes Screening

Diabetes Screening and Management

We provide Type 2 diabetes assessments to patients who feel they may be at risk. The onset of Type 2 diabetes is largely associated with lifestyle risk factors, particularly obesity, physical inactivity and poor diet.

Type 2 diabetes can be prevented and managed through lifestyle modification. International evidence has shown that early lifestyle interventions in high risk patients can reduce the incidence of Type 2 diabetes by up to 58%.

If you are concerned about your risk of having Type 2 diabetes, we recommend you contact your doctor to have a diabetes evaluation at our practice. The evaluations, known as an Annual Diabetic Cycle of Care Plan, are a joint appointment with the practice nurse and your doctor. and will involve assessment of lifestyle risk factors, Body Mass Index measurement, blood pressure and general physical exam, diet review and family history.
