Diabetes

WVU Medicine Family Medicine offers an intensive diabetes clinic for those who are newly diagnosed with the disease or having difficulty managing their condition. During one outpatient visit, you’ll receive a consultation with a medical team, including a primary care physician, a diabetic educator/dietitian, a case manager, a pharmacist, and a psychologist.

Our team approach will provide you with improved diabetic control, better coordination of your care between providers, and diabetes education. You can also receive a weekly or bi-weekly phone call from one of our pharmacists for insulin management. We can provide you with a referral to the WVU Medicine Diabetes Education Center, if needed.

Your primary care provider may refer you to the intensive diabetes clinic if:

  • You are newly diagnoses with diabetes
  • Your established diagnosis of diabetes has resulted in failure to achieve improvement in glycemic control despite medical intervention
  • You have a hemoglobin A1c of greater than or equal to nine percent.

Evaluation and Treatment

Some of our evaluation and treatment methods at the intensive diabetic clinic include:

  • Assessment of nutrition, weight, and physical activity
  • Counseling on new therapies, medications, or monitoring devices
  • Depression screening
  • Diabetic foot exam
  • Recommendations for optimal medication management
  • Retinal screening imaging using an IRIS retinal photography device
