Explaining diabetes type 1 and type 2 and how to manage them
People who receive a diagnosis of diabetes -- either type 1 or type 2 -- have much to learn about their disease. A diabetes educator like nurse practitioner Cassandra Bradford can help explain the important aspects of care, including medications, diet and exercise, and regular checks of blood sugar. While diabetes does not have a cure, it's a disease that can be managed. For more information on diabetes and treatment available through Upstate's Joslin Diabetes Center, click here.
