Diabetes is a disease that affects how the body uses glucose, a sugar that is the body's primary fuel source.  Normally, insulin, which is a hormone, helps glucose enter the body's cells where it is used for energy.  People with diabetes do not produce enough insulin, or the insulin does not work like it should.  As a result, glucose does not get into the body's cells.

 

Too much sugar in the blood can make people ill and result in medical complications.

 

Understanding the type of diabetes, the symptoms, treatment options and danger signs makes all the difference in the world to successfully manage diabetes.

 

Dr. Hector Granados and his diabetes team works with the patients and their families as a team; not just to treat diabetes, but to accompany them on the journey to good control.

 

Once a diagnosis is made and the type of diabetes your child has has been determined, a treatment plan can be properly prescribed.  Depending on the type, diabetes is treated with insulin therapy, diet, exercise, or oral medications

 

Diabetes education services are essential to provide the tools for adequate and successful  management
