Diabetic Management & Misdiagnosis

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

There are two main types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 diabetes – is a lifelong condition where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells producing insulin.
  • Type 2 diabetes – is where the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body’s cells do not react to insulin properly.

Gestational diabetes can develop during pregnancy, causing excessively high blood sugar levels. This usually goes away after giving birth.

The failure to diagnose or treat diabetes promptly and effectively can have severe consequences on an individual’s quality of life.
