Diabetology

NOMS Diabetology specializes in the clinical science of diabetes mellitus, its diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

NOMS Diabetology focuses on diabetic healthcare. Apart from regulating medication dosage and timing, we concern ourselves with the potential consequences of diabetes, e.g. retinopathy, nephropathy and peripheral neuropathy. Our treatment plan may include coordination of diabetic educators, nurses, podiatrists, ophthalmologists and renal physicians to educate, treat and monitor a patient.

At a Glance

Type 1 Diabetes

This is a condition in which little to no insulin is produced by the pancreas, which typically appears in adolescence.

 

Early Symptoms

Hunger, fatigue, frequent urination, dry mouth, itchy skin and blurred vision can all be warning signs and may warrant a visit with your provider.

 

Type 2 Diabetes

This condition effects the way the body processes glucose. Your body may not produce enough insulin or may resist it.

 

Managing Diabetes

Diabetes can be managed with insulin injections, quality nutrition, monitoring, physical activity and educational sessions. 

 

DSMES Program

The DSMES program helps people living with diabetes lower their A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Patients learn to reduce the risk of diabetes complications, leading to improved overall health. Education sessions are held in individual or group format and tailored toward the specific needs of participants. Our approach is positive, motivational and focused on empowering people to live a healthy life with diabetes.
