Stay one step ahead of your diabetes with our Fast Pace Health treatment strategies. We will adhere to your diabetic needs by administering:
Diabetes or “high sugar” is a common problem treated at Fast Pace Health. Diabetes occurs when your blood glucose, or blood sugar, is too high. A hormone made by the pancreas called insulin is used to get glucose from the food we eat into the cells to be used as energy.
If you believe you may be at risk for diabetes, visit the Fast Pace Health — Urgent Care Clinic closest to you for a diabetes screening.
The fasting blood glucose (sugar) test is the preferred way to diagnose diabetes. It is easy and convenient to perform. After the person has been without food or drink overnight (at least 8 hours), a single sample of blood is drawn and sent to the laboratory for analysis.
Type 1- Also known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitis (IDDM). It is a chronic condition where the pancreas produces little to no insulin. This is the hormone needed to turn sugar or glucose into the cells to use as energy.
Type 2- Also known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitis. (NIDDM). With type 2 your body does not use insulin properly. In the beginning, the pancreas will make extra insulin to attempt to make up for it. However, over time it isn’t able to keep your blood sugar or glucose at normal levels.
Type 1 Treatment- treatment aims at normalizing blood sugar through diet, exercise, regular monitoring, and insulin therapy.
Type 2 Treatment- treatment aims at normalizing the blood sugar through diet, exercise, oral medications, and insulin therapy when indicated.
