Diagnosing & Treating Diabetes in Norman

Helping Patients Manage Diabetic Conditions

People with diabetes experience high sugar or glucose levels in their blood. This high sugar level can damage the body's organs and lead to other problems such as nerve damage, heart attacks, loss of vision, kidney damage, and more. It is important to seek medical care for the management of this disease, in order to avoid these problems.

Effective management includes dietary guidance and lifestyle enhancements, such as carbohydrate monitoring, regular physical activity, and medical interventions like certain medications or insulin therapy. Self-monitoring of blood glucose levels using a glucometer is also a vital part of self-care for diabetic patients. At Norman Regional, we are dedicated to providing ongoing support and resources to empower you and your loved ones in effectively managing diabetic conditions.

Our healthcare services in Norman offer comprehensive diabetes treatments tailored toward each patient's unique needs. In addition to dietary guidance and lifestyle enhancements, continuous care during your treatment journey will likely involve various tests to ensure your diabetes is kept under control. These might include:

  • Hemoglobin A1c (blood test)
  • Urine analysis
  • Lipid panel (cholesterol blood test)
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Regular eye and foot examinations

Understanding your condition is also key in controlling and managing symptoms. Our endocrinology team at Norman Regional will work closely with you to provide resources and education on your condition, so you can feel empowered to make informed healthcare decisions for yourself or your loved one.
