Are you at risk for diabetes?
Diabetes rates are much higher in Graham County than the state average. You may be at risk for diabetes depending on your health and family history. Find out if you are at risk by taking this quiz.
If you are at risk, look into how to prevent diabetes and see if you have symptoms. If you have any symptoms, make an appointment to see your doctor. A list of area providers is available if you do not have a regular doctor that you already see.
If you would like to participate in our Diabetes Education program, call us to set up an appointment. You will need a referral from your doctor in order to participate in the program. You can take this form with you to an appointment and get them to fax it to us.
After your referral is completed, the first step in the program is to complete an assessment. You can come to our office to complete this, or it can be done online. For your convenience, you can print of the assessment questions, answer what you can and bring them to your appointment.
