Our Services > Diabetes Services


Diabetes has become an epidemic in our country and the Panama City area is no exception. For patients who have been diagnosed with diabetes, there is a way to manage your condition and possibly prevent the many complications associated with diabetes. Bay Medical DiabetesServices include a comprehensive education and counseling program based on the philosophy that medical supervision, along with education in the areas of self-care management, nutrition, exercise, medication, and developing a positive attitude are important components in the successful treatment of diabetes.

Bay Medical offers diabetes counseling for patients in the hospital as well as group and individual programs offered on an outpatient basis for those who wish to learn to manage their condition. These sessions can help you learn how to control your diabetes. You will also learn and practice new skills to cope with diabetes while maintaining a nearly normal lifestyle. A detailed summary of each visit is sent to your physician so your new skills and knowledge can be considered in your continuing health care plan. Visit our Diabetes Education page to learn more.
