At the Dorminy Diabetes Management Clinic, we create an individualized care plan based on the patient’s diabetic symptoms, metabolism, and medical history to determine the best treatment plan for you. Our Diabetes Team consists of a Nurse Practitioner, nurses and medical assistants.
A diabetes management program can include:
• Weight and nutrition education
• Smoking and alcohol cessation counseling
• Physical therapies
• Wound care
We use an FDA-approved infusion “smart” pump to mimic the insulin delivery patterns of a healthy pancreas. This helps re-program the signaling and communication processes between the pancreas and other cells in the body addressing the root cause of diabetes, insulin resistance, and underproduction, instead of only treating the symptoms.
How does this process work?
This therapy involves recreating the initial elevated insulin release response that occurs when glucose from a meal enters our bloodstream, along with the more consistent basal rhythms of normal pancreatic insulin release. This, coupled with an alternating regimen of glucose ingestion, synthesizes the body’s natural process of using insulin to convert glucose to energy. The patient's medical history, previous lab values, and other physiologic indicators drive a personally tailored approach to the patient's care plan and therapy management. This individualized method is a highly effective and efficient way of sensitizing the patient’s body to the insulin it needs to properly digest and dispose of glucose in the bloodstream.
The treatment is designed to reduce insulin resistance, which is the primary cause of Type-2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Your treatment:
