Diabetes Education

Every 60 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes -- the sixth leading cause of death by disease in the United States. Roper St. Francis Healtcare serves a population particularly hard hit by this disease: 300,000 adults in South Carolina have diagnosed diabetes and at least 120,000 more have diabetes but do not yet know it.

When left untreated, diabetes and its complications can lead to heart and kidney disease, amputation, blindness and other serious and life threatening health problems. Controlling blood sugar levels is critical in order to reduce the complications of diabetes. While there is no cure for diabetes, we offer comprehensive diabetes treatment to help control the disease and to prevent or manage the complications that are common to diabetes.
