Why Choose Mount Nittany Health Diabetes Care?

Diabetes is a chronic disease caused by the body producing elevated levels of blood sugar (also called glucose). Over time, this can lead to serious damage to many vital organs.

Living with diabetes is challenging and requires daily management. However, with proper education and medical care patients can live a full life. Mount Nittany Health’s team of providers is committed to helping you understand diabetes. We aim to educate everyone in the community about ways to prevent diabetes. We also help treat and manage patients who have been diagnosed.

Our outpatient Diabetes Education program is accredited through the Association for Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (ADCES).

Our Approach

Diabetes care often starts with your primary care provider. All Mount Nittany Health primary care locations have providers that specialize in diabetes. They can refer you to other areas for specialty diabetes care as needed.
