The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently identified the southern United States as a “Diabetes Belt,” meaning that those who live in our area are more likely to have type 2 diabetes than anyone else in the United States.

“This is a concerning discovery,” Internist and Primary Care Physician Dr. Douglas Perry said. “Those who live with diabetes often have difficult daily routines to manage, which can quickly become overwhelming. They have to be extremely vigilant in watching what they eat, how active they are, what medicines they’re taking, and how they’re taking them.”

SouthCoast Health offers Diabetic Self-Management Training Sessions, designed to teach the skills necessary for managing diabetes, such as creating meal plans and how to check blood pressure.
