America is facing two health epidemics. First, we’re overweight. The rate of obesity among adults has doubled in the U.S. since 1980 and tripled among children. And being overweight is one of the main risk factors contributing to the second epidemic: diabetes. Almost 26 million Americans already have the disease, and recent studies indicate that more than 50 percent of Americans could be at risk for developing diabetes by 2020. Fortunately, at Main Street Hospital, we provide a comprehensive range of services for the prevention and treatment of diabetes, from testing and education to nutritional counseling. We provide diabetic patients and their families with the care management skills to monitor their medications and blood sugar levels, and our wound care services have been a lifesaver for many diabetic patients with serious complications. The technology, the expertise and the services needed to fight diabetes are all right here, close to home.
