The Mercy Diabetes and Nutrition Center in Washington, MO 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 diabetes treatment programs and can help treat other diseases and disorders, including cancer, heart disease and obesity.
