Help your patients with diabetes and prediabetes live their best life possible.
In Delaware, the prevalence of diabetes has almost doubled since 1991. In the average primary practice, it’s likely that more than one-third of patients who are age 18 or older, and half of those age 65 or older, are prediabetic. The resources here can help your patients learn about diabetes and stay on top of their glucose levels. Classes, services, and programs are designed to help your patients manage their diabetes successfully.
