At Ridgeview Clinics, we continually strive to improve the care for our patients diagnosed with diabetes. Research has demonstrated that receiving care from a diabetes team will more effectively help you maintain your health and avoid complications.
As you know, diabetes sometimes necessitates dramatic lifestyle changes. While a healthy diet and regular exercise are important for all of us, they are even more important for individuals with diabetes. Most individuals with diabetes will require medications not only for their diabetes, but also to control their blood pressure and cholesterol.

- Blood pressure
- Blood glucose monitoring
- Diabetic visit
- Dilated eye exams
- Foot checks
- Hemoglobin A1C
- Lipid profile
