DIABETES MANAGEMENT CLINIC

At JCMC Diabetes Clinic we offer patients personal attention and advice on how to manage your diabetes.

Our clinic is located in the offices behind the main hospital: 931 E Winthrope Ave, Millen, GA 30442

Hours: Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm

At the Diabetes Clinic, we create an individualized care plan based on the patient’s diabetic symptoms, metabolism, and medical history to determine the best treatment plan for you. Our Diabetes Team consists of Whitney Jones, NP and our treatment plans will be overseen by Dr. Gay, JCMC Medical Director. A diabetes management program can include:

• Weight and nutrition education

• Smoking and alcohol cessation counseling

• Physical therapies

• Wound care

We use an FDA-approved infusion “smart” pump to mimic the insulin delivery patterns of a healthy pancreas. This helps re-program the signaling and communication processes between the pancreas and other cells in the body addressing the root cause of diabetes, insulin resistance and underproduction, instead of only treating the symptoms.

How does this process work?

This therapy involves recreating the initial elevated insulin release response that occurs when glucose from a meal enters our bloodstream, along with the more consistent basal rhythms of normal pancreatic insulin release.  This, coupled with an alternating regimen of glucose ingestion, synthesizes the body’s natural process of using insulin to convert glucose to energy.  The patients’ medical history, previous lab values, and other physiologic indicators drive a personally tailored approach to the patients’ care plan and therapy management.  This individualized method is a highly effective and efficient way of sensitizing the patient’s body to the insulin it needs to properly digest and utilize glucose in the bloodstream.

 

The treatment is designed to reduce insulin resistance, which is the primary cause of Type-2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Your treatment:

• Diagnostic testing and blood work

• Disease assessment and individualized care planning

• Infusion therapy sessions
