Treatment For Diabetes

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes (the disease in which blood sugar levels are too high). Type 1 Diabetes results from the body not producing insulin, a hormone that helps the glucose or sugar get into the body’s cells for energy. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common type in which the body does not make enough insulin and does not properly use it. The glucose or sugar ends up staying in the blood, which eventually may damage the eyes, kidneys and even nerves. Diabetes may also cause heart disease or stroke. Gestational diabetes affects only pregnant women. And lastly, pre-diabetes is the condition in which a person’s blood sugar levels are high, but not enough to categorize for type 2 diabetes.

Possible Symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Thirst
  • Weight loss
  • Blurred vision
  • Frequent urination

It is important to remember that some people may not have any symptoms at all, and only a blood test may show if diabetes is present. Diabetes is a genetic disease; it is possible you may be at risk if your family members are sufferers. To find out for sure, as well as establish a consistent and healthy meal plan, exercise routine, and weight control, it is important to see our physicians.

Evaluation and treatment for Diabetes is available now at Sourth Atlanta Urgent Care Clinic in Atlanta.

I was in and out with my toddler. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Much better than going to the emergency room

Oh my goodness! The staff here were amazing and accommodated us for an unexpected walk up test we needed. Such great service at the end of a long day. Thank you!

Our primary doctor's office closed early today so we decided to go to this urgent care. The staff was very professional and personal with us. My son asked if we could change our provider to this location (which means he was comfortable here) but I was informed by the staff member that they have a provider in Morrow. We will be using their doctor soon as our primary provider. The doctor was great with explaining the issue and electronically sending the prescription to our pharmacy of choice. I will be back if I ever need an urgent care facility.
