Our motto: Prevent. Control. Thrive.
As a leader in the field of diabetes treatment, the Mount Sinai Diabetes Center provides patient-centered compassionate and comprehensive care for people with type 1, type 2, gestational (pregnancy related) diabetes, and related disorders. Our experienced, multidisciplinary team of specialized physicians, registered dieticians, nurse practitioners, and certified diabetes educators work together to create an individualized treatment program using state-of-the-art clinical therapies and the latest research. And we partner with your primary care provider to ensure you get the most thorough care possible.
Diabetes is a serious, chronic condition and the possibility of severe complications is very real. With a personalized treatment plan provided by the physicians and staff of the Mount Sinai Diabetes Center, you can manage your disease and lower your risk of serious – even life-threatening – complications including eye-damage (retinopathy), kidney damage (nephropathy), nerve damage (neuropathy), foot problems and cardiovascular disease to name a few.
Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Treatment
Based on the type of diabetes you have, your age, lifestyle, overall health and whether you have other chronic conditions, we design an individualized treatment and management plan with your future in mind. Specialists from neurology, ophthalmology, podiatry, vascular surgery, nephrology, cardiology, internal medicine, urology, surgery and other specialties at The Mount Sinai Medical Center are called upon as needed to assist in your care. Thanks to our new electronic medical record system, My Chart, we can ensure that your care remains seamless whether you’re seeing one of our specialists or your primary care physician.
By closely working with other specialties, and monitoring your results carefully, we work to prevent future complications, control the progression of disease, and help you recover from poor diabetes control or from related complications. With proper long-term treatment, early interventions before problems develop, and through our American Diabetes Association (ADA)-recognized diabetes education programs at the Diabetes Center, we can help you lead a healthy and productive life.
The care you get from our staff is only one side of the equation. Our goal is to empower you to control your disease. We offer self-management training in meal planning, physical activities, oral and injectable medications, and, if needed, various forms of insulin therapy. Many patients and their families who are initially overwhelmed by their diabetes diagnosis find support when they come to our free diabetes classes.
In our practice, we routinely treat patients using the latest technological developments and are constantly performing research into diabetes and related endocrine disorders. All of our work as researchers, clinicians, and educators has but one goal: to make everyday life better for our patients – every single day of the year.
