At The DOCS, our Las Vegas diabetes center specializes in diabetic care for children and adults. Kids with diabetes need to learn and be educated about their disease, and how to take care of it. It’s important to teach children who suffer from diabetes the importance of proper nutrition and care of their diabetes. Diet, exercise and knowledge are all important.
Diabetic management for kid is different from that of adults. Insulin doses must be carefully measured out depending on body size and children and teens have different hormonal shifts such as puberty happening as opposed to adults. Young children are unable to provide for their own diabetic care. That’s why our Las Vegas diabetes center educates parents and families on the importance of pediatric diabetic care. The entire family should know exactly what is happening when it comes to their family member with diabetes and be able to help out accordingly when needed. Children should be taught to manage their diabetes with parental involvement so that when they reach independence they are able to care for themselves properly.
Our Las Vegas diabetes center also provides treatment for obesity, endocrine care, vascular care and interventional radiology. We are the only American Diabetes Association Certified Center in Nevada and also known as a Medtronic Center of Excellence. Diabetes can be monitored and controlled with proper diet, exercise and attention to one’s health. Educating your child about their diabetes is best done as at an early age as possible. Our center provides a team of professionals who will work with you and your child to manage, treat and keep their diabetes under control.
