As a growing number of people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the need to self-manage diabetes has increased. For people who want to know more about controlling and managing their diabetes, the doctors and staff at Eau Claire Cooperative Health Center (ECCHC) can help.
Poor control of blood sugars can lead to numerous serious complications, such as heart disease, chronic kidney disease (or CKD) and eventually kidney failure, eye damage and blindness, foot wounds, and lower leg amputations. Our expert doctors offer practical tips, advice, and other resources that patients can use in their daily life to stay healthy and reduce the risk of these and other complications.
At ECCHC, our providers emphasize a healthy diet, weight control, and daily exercise, as well as a comprehensive and proactive approach to managing pain stemming from nerve damage and poor circulation. We provide diabetes patients with the latest information about this disease, as well as the support and encouragement you need to successfully manage diabetes.
