Diabetes

What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes means that the sugar levels in your blood are too high. To understand diabetes, you must first know what happens when you eat.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when:
• Your body does not make enough insulin, or
• Your body does not respond well to its own insulin.

Without enough insulin:
• Your body does not get the energy it needs.
• Sugar builds up in the blood and can lead to serious health problems.

 

 

 Department of Family Medicine News

The Department of Family Medicine has opened an addition to the current building housing University Family Physicians.  In this new addition, the clinical staff will be operating in four suites under a team structure with new, state of the art exam rooms.  There are also updated, new procedure, x-ray and ultrasound, and laboratory rooms.

Was a staff member, physician, or nurse helpful today?  Did they make a positive inpact on your visit to our office?  Would you like to recognize the person?  We have a Family Tree program where patients can recognize employees who make a difference in their lives.  To recognize an employee, please let an employee know that you would like to recognize an employee and make a donation on behalf of the employee. 

UFP now has electronic check-in!  At your next visit, you will be asked to check-in and update any information on an iPad.  This will ensure a quicker check-in process and will ultimately reduce the amount of time spent at our office.
