Type 2 Diabetes: Your Road to Wellness Starts Here

If you’re one of 20 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes, the way you choose to live—in particular the foods you eat and the activity level you maintain—are two of the biggest factors affecting your quality of life going forward.

Potential complications with diabetes

Diabetes occurs when your body does not produce enough insulin, a necessary hormone that helps the body convert food into energy. Over time, a whole host of complications may develop, including heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, nerve problems and possible amputation. For this reason, diabetes isn't a disease you want to leave unchecked. 

Helping people make healthy choices

That’s why Virtua’s highly-skilled team of board-certified endocrinologists and certified diabetes educators are committed to helping you learn how to manage your blood sugar levels through proper monitoring and medication, as well as diet and exercise. Our staff will work with you one-on-one to develop an individual lifestyle plan that works for you.

Our outpatient diabetes self-management education program is one of only three programs in the region recognized for excellence by the American Diabetes Association.
