Diabetes is a disorder that affects the way the body processes glucose, or blood sugar, which is required by all cells in the body for energy needs. The effects of untreated diabetes can be devastating. New England Allergy specializes in diabetes and offers a variety of tools to help you manage your diabetes when you visit our clinic.
Your role as a patient with diabetes is to record blood sugar levels, track, and observe your diabetes changes and levels. Our endocrinologists work closely with you to diagnose and manage your diabetes in the most effective way for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
