The Mercy Diabetes and Nutrition Center is an important resource for all of our patients. Studies have shown that better educated diabetic patients regularly monitor blood sugar levels, increasingly comply with prescribed therapy regimens, achieve lower A1c levels and live longer, healthier lives. In addition, nutrition counseling can be an important part of treatment programs for a variety of diseases and disorders, including cancer, heart disease and obesity.
