Being diagnosed with diabetes requires absorbing a lot of information while one may still be in a state of shock. This section is designed to help patients and families better understand the condition and how to manage their diabetes so that they can make more informed decisions and participate fully in their health and well-being. There are tips on how to cope with the diagnosis and to help others around you cope as well. You'll find out how to reach local and national groups that can provide needed support, and in our newsletters, read stories about people who have been treated successfully by our expert healthcare team.
If you are scheduled for a first appointment, please complete the New Patient Questionnaire and bring it with you to your appointment or fax it to us ahead of time (Fax: 310-423-0429). Of course, if there is anything you need to know that hasn't been answered, please ask any of us at the Diabetes Center.
