About Diabetes

The incidence of Type 2 diabetes is growing at an alarming rate in the U.S. Some 23.6 million children and adults, or 7.8% of the population, have diabetes, and another 5.7 million people are unaware that they have the disease. Diabetes may be inherited, or it can result from environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise. If left untreated, diabetes can result in life-threatening complications.

That’s why it’s important to be screened for the disease, and if you have diabetes, it’s vital to monitor and control your blood sugar level in order to manage the disease. Yet this is not an easy task and can be quite confusing at times.

At Marion Heart Associates and Marion Internal Medicine, Dr. Vesely can help you learn everything you need to know to stay healthy and avoid diabetic complications. During your appointment, you will receive individualized education about:

  • Glucose monitoring and A1C testing
  • Administering insulin injections (if necessary)
  • Taking your prescribed medications
  • The importance of nutrition, meal planning and exercise
  • Potential complications of diabetes and how to prevent them

If you have diabetes or you are at risk for developing diabetes, make an appointment today with Ocala’s premier diabetes doctor. Dr. Vesely is available at our East Ocala office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Call our East Ocala or Summerfield Endocrinology specialist at (352) 867-9603 or request an appointment online.
