What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes affects a number of Americans. This condition interferes with your body's natural ability to regulate sugar levels. This can cause an increased risk of heart disease, kidney issues, vision problems, nerve damage, and other health concerns. At Coastal Health, providers Dr. Detorres and Dr. West help individuals in Port Townsend, Sequim, and surrounding Washington state communities diagnose and manage their type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as gestational diabetes. If you have or think you may have diabetes, please contact Dr. Detorres or Dr. West at her Port Angeles, WA office so they can help you detect and treat your diabetes.

What Can I Expect from Diabetes Treatments?
Diabetes is a chronic condition that needs to be well-managed or it can cause damage to organs and other tissues over time. Family history, obesity, blood pressure, and nutrition can all impact a person's risk of getting diabetes. Common symptoms of diabetes include hyperglycemia, frequent bathroom breaks, and excessive thirst; however, many may have no symptoms at all, leaving it undetected without regular screenings. During your initial consultation with Coastal Health, she'll review all these factors, as well as take blood work. From there, she will work with you to create a treatment plan that can help you regulate your diabetes. Dr. Detorres or Dr. West will try to help you maintain your diabetes with diet, exercise, regulating blood glucose, and more. Your particular treatment plan will vary based on your lifestyle and more.
