Diagnosis of diabetes

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is helping his patients that are diagnosed with diabetes.

Cholesterol and blood pressure goals are sometimes lower in diabetes, which means you need blood pressure medications.

Patients can get overwhelmed by needing multiple new medications simultaneously. Consultation with a diabetes educator can be very helpful in addition to talking to your doctor.

Your doctor will be the one to have diagnosed the condition, so remain in continual contact with your physician to begin management of the disease.
