A-P Medical Group focus is on ensuring that the beta cells are preserved. We spend a lot of time educating our patients on both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical approaches to dealing with their diabetes or pre-diabetic states. 33% of all men and 39% of all women will suffer from diabetes during their lifetime. African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans are also more prone to develop diabetes. At A-P Medical Group, we attempt to find those who are prone to develop diabetes before they develop the disease and make every effort to see to it that they avoid it.
Beta cells in the pancreas make insulin for us. The function of these cells declines as people progress toward developing diabetes.
For those who have already been diagnosed with diabetes, we offer a variety of therapeutic options, and are well versed in the various medications available.
