Hyperglycemia is a condition where too much glucose (a form of sugar) circulates around the body in the plasma. This condition is all too common among Americans today. According to our endocrinologist specialist 89113 at The DOCS ideally blood glucose levels should be between 70 – 150 milligrams when measured on a blood glucose meter, with any prolonged reading over 240 being too high and a prolonged reading of under 70 too low. It is not healthy to have glucose levels that are either too high or too low. Blood sugar that is too high can cause many serious health problems, chief among these is a condition called Type 2 Diabetes.
Diabetes is just one of the serious conditions treated by our endocrinologist specialist 89113. Our practice also specializes in diagnosing and treating obesity, cardiovascular issues and in pain management. Our state-of-the-art office has the latest technology and equipment to help our patients as well as a friendly and compassionate staff to make your appointment stress-free. Many people are overweight today and cannot seem to lose the excess pounds by themselves. Obesity is an extremely serious problem that places a great deal of stress on the body and is the cause or a complicating factor in many diseases. We take a non-surgical approach to weight loss, using medications to curb appetite, one-on-one counseling as well as customized nutrition and exercise programs.
Our endocrinologist specialist 89113 diagnoses and treats cardiovascular problems in many different ways. Our non-invasive testing program uses electrocardiography, nuclear imaging as well as ultrasound imaging among other tests to diagnose patient’s problems. Sometimes it is necessary to get inside the body to figure out what is wrong and treat it with procedures such as coronary and peripheral angioplasty, cardiac ablation, stents, diagnostic cardiac catheterization and pacemaker implantation among others. Our doctor can evaluate you to see if there are any problems with your blood sugar, weight, cardiovascular system or help you manage any chronic or acute pain.
