Tillamook Diabetes Treatment

We help patients take a hands-on approach to diabetes care

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that can cause serious health problems. Thankfully it is one that can be controlled through careful management.

Unfortunately, diabetes kills more Americans every year than breast cancer and AIDs combined. This is partly because not enough people are given the opportunity to learn diabetes management through a proven education program. Many people do not even realize they have the disease because they were never diagnosed.

The American Diabetes Association recognizes Adventist Health Tillamook's diabetes education program as meeting their National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education. The medical center has been a nationally certified diabetes education provider since 2008. We can help you keep diabetes under control so that it does not cause health problems in the future.

Recognizing diabetes warning signs

Most people know about diabetes, but few people know the early warning signs that alert them to the problem. The early symptoms of diabetes can be subtle. It is easy to mistake them for symptoms of something else. Keep an eye out for the following symptoms of diabetes, particularly if you are overweight or have a family history with the disease:

  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Increased fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Blurry vision

Increased urination and thirst are usually the first noticeable signs. Excessive hunger is usually quick to follow, and if you have not gained weight despite your increased appetite then you should seriously consider getting tested for diabetes.
