Why Choose UH?
Rates of diabetes and obesity are on the rise in the U.S. These conditions can lead to a host of related complications, causing serious illness and shortening lifespans.
At University Hospitals, we are dedicated to addressing this epidemic head-on by utilizing the latest research to provide prevention, management and treatment for patients with diabetes, obesity and associated illnesses.
With ongoing clinical monitoring and patient education, we set patients up for success and encourage them to be active participants in their care. Our diabetes and obesity experts also work closely with the patient’s primary care physician and specialists to make recommendations regarding care.
One of the main goals of our center is to contribute to the understanding of these diseases through a robust, multidisciplinary research program. Our team of physician-scientists seeks to learn more about the physiology/pathology, treatment, prevention, education and outcomes of diabetes and related conditions. Our doctors in turn will be able to translate this knowledge into better care for our patients.
Conditions and Treatments
Our team provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for the full range of diabetes and obesity-related conditions. Disease management include continuous glucose monitoring, insulin and medications, and nutrition and exercise recommendations.
Because diabetes and obesity can affect many other areas of your health, our team brings together experts in multiple specialties to help prevent and manage related conditions. These specialty areas include:
Non-Surgical Weight Loss
