Sinai Hospital opens diabetes center
Baltimore's Sinai Hospital recently opened a center designed to teach patients with diabetes how to manage their disease and improve their lifestyle with advice and support.
With glucose monitoring instruction, nutritional counseling and insulin and medication training, the Diabetes Resource Center offers people one-on-one time with doctors, nurses and specialists to discuss their condition and create a treatment plan. It also offers group session for continued support.
With some 18 million people nationwide struggling with diabetes -- nearly 360,000 of them in Maryland alone -- the needs for support are huge. Many more are living with diabetes and have not been diagnosed.
