Neuropathy Assessment

Diabetic Neuropathy Testing

Neuropathy is nerve damage that often occurs in people that suffer diabetes. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout the body resulting in symptoms that range from pain and numbness in the legs and feet, to problems with the digestive system and heart. Diabetes Center of Wellness offers diagnostic testing to patients that are experiencing signs of diabetic neuropathy.

Arthritis Joint Relief

We’ll Get You Moving

Many of our patients living with Type 2 diabetes also battle with Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) causes joints to become stiff and painful, making it difficult to move. Exercise and movement are an important component in managing diabetes and for overall health. Diabetes Center of Wellness offers non-invasive, FDA approved knee injection treatment to help cushion the knee and increase patient mobility. Our treatment uses SUPARTZ FX hyaluronic acid injection to relieve the pain of Osteoarthritis in patients that do not get adequate pain relief from pain medications(e.g. Advil ®, Tylenol ®, Aleve ®, etc.).

On-Site Lab Testing

Lab & Diagnostic Testing

Diabetes Center of Wellness offers onsite lab testing for our patient’s convenience. Our labs are opened from 7am to 1pm every day. This allows us to run specialized testing without delaying our patient’s results.

Thyroid Treatment & Disorder

What are thyroid disorders?

Thyroid disorders are conditions that occur when the thyroid doesn’t function like it should. Two main types of thyroid disorders exist: hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid is overactive, while hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid is underactive. Other conditions may also affect thyroid function, but they’re less common.

Diabetes

What is diabetes?

Diabetes Mellitus is a group of conditions that affect the body’s ability to use blood sugar. The body needs proper blood sugar levels to operate the brain, muscles, and other tissues. When blood sugar levels are out of balance, the body suffers.

Two primary types of diabetes exist: type 1 and type 2. While Type 1 Diabetes usually begins in childhood, Type 2 Diabetes usually begins later in life. Both of these conditions cause similar symptoms, which may include:

  • Frequent urination

  • Extreme hunger

  • Increased thirst

  • Fatigue

  • Unexplained weight loss

  • Slowed healing of wounds

  • Vision disturbances

  • Irritability

  • Frequent infections
