A Team Approach to Diabetes Care

Over 11% of the US population — more than 25 million Americans — suffered from some form of diabetes in 2022. As more Americans are diagnosed, we are learning more and more about how this disease affects people in different ways.

One certain thing is that almost anyone with diabetes can feel healthier and live a longer, fuller life with proper management to reduce the risk of developing serious complications.

Managing diabetes is a life-long endeavor. Effective care takes a team effort and a custom approach, like the one offered at Piedmont Healthcare.
