  • I already have a primary care provider who manages my diabetes care. Will they be sent the info and data from this program?
    If you already have a PCP that manages your diabetes, our specialists are here to help coordinate care. They will work with your primary care doctor to actively manage your condition, offer deeper expertise and provide information to support your diabetes care plan.
  • What does a CGM do that traditional at-home diabetes tests don’t ?
    In addition to being time consuming, traditional at-home diabetes tests only provide snapshot insights into your blood sugar levels and don’t truly provide a full picture. Constant monitoring allows you to obtain a record of your blood sugar levels, mitigating the amount of highs and lows and helping provide valuable information to prevent future diabetes-related issues.
  • What are the benefits of the Abbott Freestyle Libre 14-Day Sensor CGM?
    The Freestyle Libre sensor measures glucose in the interstitial fluid and is FDA approved for use on the back of the upper arm. Unlike other sensors, the Freestyle Libre sensor is good for 14 days, which means you have to replace the sensor less frequently.
  • What do you mean by whole person health?
    Our providers understand that diabetes doesn’t just affect the body. Having a chronic condition can have an impact on your mental health, which is why our programs aim to treat the whole person. Our care teams will conduct an assessment of diabetes-related distress and craft a plan that helps you alleviate that stress, as best as possible.
  • Can you prescribe common medications for diabetes?
    There are many types of insulin-based medications used to help control diabetes. Our doctors will work with you to choose a medication that fits your unique needs. They’ll also help refill your prescriptions, to make sure there’s no gap in your care plan.

  • How can I eat a diabetes-friendly diet?
    Nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle when you have diabetes. Crafting and following a healthy diet can help keep your blood sugar levels in your target range, leading to fewer diabetes-related symptoms and preventing future complications. 

    Many people worry that a diabetes-friendly diet means that they can’t enjoy any of their favorite foods, but that usually isn’t the case. The goal is to have balance, which means enjoying some foods in moderation, while increasing the amount of nutrient-rich foods, including:
    • Fruits
    • Vegetables
    • Whole grains
    • Protein
    • Dairy
