Roughly 17 million Americans have diabetes, a disorder that affects the way your body transforms the food you eat into growth and energy. Untreated, Type II diabetes can cause kidney failure, limb amputation, and blindness.
Further, those who have Type II diabetes are more likely to develop heart disease. Unfortunately, those who have the disease don’t always recognize its symptoms.
But AIM knows what to look for – and, with early detection, we may be able to help you make lifestyle changes to prevent full-blown diabetes from taking hold. Diet, exercise and behavior modification can help combat the disease.
If you do develop diabetes, we offer comprehensive diabetes education and treatment. AIM can help manage your condition so that you can live a full and happy life.
