Diabetes is a lifelong, chronic disease in which blood sugar levels remain abnormally high. Typical management of this disease consists of consistent blood glucose testing, injections of insulin, prescription medication, and maintaining healthy diet and levels of exercise.

How will we determine if I have Diabetes?

Patients who suffer from diabetes can also benefit from integrative treatments in conjunction with the treatments prescribed by their primary care doctor or endocrinologist. Dr. Cohen believes that optimizing a patient’s diet and exercise or physical therapies can help regulate blood sugar levels, and in many cases, eliminate the need to insulin injections altogether. Dr. Cohen works with her patients who suffer from diabetes to help identify what type of diabetes they have, and determines the best course of action, in consultation with the patient’s endocrinologist.
