Diabetic care intervention management and testing includes:

Diabetic Eye Exam

  • Eye exams are conducted to check for retina damage or diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy occurs in 80% of people who have had diabetes for more than 20 years. Early detection is key to detect the problem before symptoms begin.

Microalbumin Test

  • Measures kidney functions to detect albumin, a serum protein that can be an early sign of diabetic kidney damage. Detecting and treating kidney damage early can help to maintain as much kidney function as possible.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Test

  • Tests and a physical exam are conducted to detect nerve damage due to microvascular changes affecting the nerves. When neuropathy progresses symptoms including numbness and pain are experienced leading to further complications. Detecting subtle losses of sensation can help to diagnose the condition before symptoms present.

Hemoglobin A1c Test

  • Measures glycol-hemoglobin which reflects average blood sugar level over 2-3 months. The higher the hemoglobin A1c the higher the risk for complications related to diabetes. The test is used to diagnose diabetes as well as determine medication needs and treatment plans for people who have diabetes.

Peripheral Artery Disease Test

  • Measures blood flow volume to identify often undetected and undiagnosed circulation issues in the legs. Untreated peripheral artery disease is a risk factor that can lead to severe diabetic complications. Early detection and management can improve outcomes.

Cardiovascular Assessment

  • Helps to detect high blood pressure. Having diabetes may put individuals at greater risk for cardiovascular disease/arteriosclerotic heart disease, high blood pressure (>140/90) is a risk factor for diabetic complications. Controlling and managing conditions may help to lower the risk for adverse diabetic health events.
