Atlanta Diabetes Doctors | Elite Care

At Elite Care Internal Medicine, we are committed to serving our patients, guiding them towards a healthier and happier lifestyle. If you have Atlanta diabetes, you realize it can be a struggle at times.

But we help our patients with diabetes through three key avenues: education, prevention, and management. When you come to Elite Care, Dr. Priya Palliyil will be with you every step of the way. Her expertise and support will help you deal with diabetes to the best of your capability.

As with any disease or illness, you must first understand diabetes in order to find the best solution.


Education

Atlanta diabetes occurs when the glucose levels in your blood, also known as blood sugar levels, are higher than ordinary, which is a result of the sugar that is in the foods we eat.

Insulin is a natural hormone created in the body that helps break glucose down and turn it into energy. When a patient suffers from diabetes it means that his/her body does not produce insulin or does not efficiently use the insulin that is produced within the body.

There are two forms of diabetes that patients encounter: Type I and Type II. Type I diabetes means that your body does not have the ability to produce insulin. Meanwhile, Type II is when your body either does not make insulin or does not use insulin well.

When patients aren't aware of the problem or do not treat it properly, diabetes can cause severe damage to your body, including your kidneys, nerves, and the eyes. In addition, heart disease and stroke can result.

With Elite Care, however, we will educate you on Atlanta diabetes so that prevention and management are easier and better understood.

Prevention and Management

Prevention and management of Atlanta diabetes work hand in hand. While diabetes cannot always be prevented, it can always be managed. And with the right management plan, patients can prevent diabetes from inflicting worse damage.

A healthy, well-rounded diet is the first step in managing diabetes. This means less sugar, fat, and alcohol. Not only will this help you manage your diabetes, but also your weight, developing a healthier lifestyle. Exercise or a regular workout regimen is another way to help control your diabetes.

Patients may also control symptoms of diabetes through insulin shots.
