Here at PanCare Health, our team of primary care doctors provides urgent treatment for diabetic care needs. We provide care to those on Medicaid and Medicare and the uninsured to ensure everyone gets the affordable healthcare they need when medical problems arise. Wondering when you should see our Freeport and Bonifay, FL, doctors for diabetic care?
Your Doctor Has Just Diagnosed You
Has your primary care doctor just told you that you have diabetes? If so, you may be wondering what the next steps will be. While we do offer routine and urgent diabetic care to patients living in and around Freeport and Bonifay, FL, we can also provide referrals to specialists such as an endocrinologist who can provide you with specialized treatment options to help you manage your disease.
Your Blood Sugar Levels Aren’t Properly Controlled
While a healthy diet and lifestyle can help keep blood sugar levels in check, when you have diabetes, you are also most likely going to need medication to help maintain your blood sugar. Together this treatment plan should be working to manage your condition; however, if you notice that your blood sugar levels still remain outside the target range even when taking your medicine, you should schedule an appointment with us. We may need to alter your dose.
It’s Time for a Checkup
When you have a chronic health problem such as diabetes it’s important that you turn to your doctor regularly for checkups. If you’re still having issues managing your blood sugar with your current treatment plan, you should be visiting us every three months. If everything is working as it should, then you’ll only need to come in every six months.
You’re Dealing with Health Problems
Those with diabetes are more at risk for health complications so it’s important that when everything from an ulcer on your foot to vision changes occurs, you immediately call us. Here at PanCare Health, we provide urgent care to our diabetic patients who are dealing with health problems that require immediate treatment.
