"Responsibility for your health demonstrates how much you love life and your loved ones."
As a patient for over 7 years at Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center, my support team of physicians, nurses, diabetes educators, dieticians, and pharmacists, has helped me accept and manage my diabetes.
Upon receiving my diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus, I was in denial. I did not want to take responsability of my condition and couldn’t rationalize why this was happening to me. After realizing that this condition is one that I will have to live with for the rest of life, I went into feeling out of control. The many tasks that I would have to complete in order to manage my diabetes, such as checking my blood sugar daily, restricting my diet, and exercising more, all became overwhelming.
"Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center has helped me get back to a more active and normal life."
When I began receiving treatment at Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center, the first thing I noticed was the staff’s support and willingness to educate me about my condition. They helped me establish long-term goals, and provided me with the tools and resources I needed to achieve them. I personally found the customized treatment plans especially helpful, as they were specifically tailored to manage and control my diabetes. Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center also offers individual and group education classes that helped me become familiar with my day-to-day responsibilities to keep my condition under control.
Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center has helped me get back to a normal life. By taking an active role in the management and control of my diabetes, I know I am much healthier today than I was the day I walked in here.
