With one in ten New Yorkers currently living with diabetes, Sun River Health is committed to helping our patients manage their blood sugar. Sun River Health offers simple blood sugar tests to detect if someone is prediabetic and provides nutrition counseling and medication that can help manage or even reverse the diagnosis. Prediabetes puts our patients at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Poorly controlled diabetes can affect every organ in a person’s body, especially the eyes. Over 5 million adults have diabetes-related complications that affect sight and over 900,000 have a diagnosis of blindness as a result. Sun River Health has implemented a free, in-house service called EyePACS to capture any potential eye problems and prevent potential blindness for our patients with diabetes.
Donations to the Sun River Health Foundation's Diabetes Management Care Fund help patients living with diabetes and prediabetes regulate their blood sugar levels and be on the way to maintaining a healthy, active life!
