CoxHealth - Because Life Happens

CoxHealth Diabetes Center

We can help you learn how to control your diabetes and lower your risk for long-term complications.

Diabetes is a disease that can have serious effects on many parts of your body, sometimes permanently. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart and kidney disease, amputations, blindness and other serious problems.

Scientific research has proven that controlling blood sugar levels can reduce the long-term complications of diabetes, and helping you control your blood sugar levels over the long term is what our diabetes program is all about.

Our caring, experienced staff of dietitians, diabetes educators and registered nurses will help you learn to control your diabetes by eating healthy, exercising and taking your medicines the right way. We provide this education and support through our outpatient services, and if you ever need to be in the hospital, through our inpatient services.


"The American Diabetes Association recognizes this education service as meeting the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education."
