Diabetes prevention and treatment

Native Americans have a greater chance of having diabetes than any other racial group in the United States.

Managing your diabetes can be a challenge, but you can take control by working with your healthcare team here at Marimn Health. We want to help you learn how to live well with diabetes.

Our program provides support and education for patients who have diabetes. People with diabetes are at risk for complications that may affect their heart, eyes, feet, kidneys, and other parts of the body.

Adopting healthy behaviors can help you avoid or minimize complications. If you have diabetes, we can help you:

  • Learn ways to lower stress.
  • Work with one of our registered dietitians to make a diabetes meal plan that emphasizes foods lower in calories, sugar, salt, and saturated fat.
  • Find ways to be active every day.


Education and Support

We’re also here to support our patients who are pre-diabetic to delay or prevent the onset of diabetes. Prevention is possible and we’re here to help. In fact, studies show that people who are at a high risk for diabetes can prevent or delay the onset simply by losing a little bit of weight and getting regular exercise. Small steps can make a big difference. We can help you determine if you’re at high risk, and if you are, we’ll work with you to reduce the risk.


Foot Care

One complication from diabetes is nerve damage in your feet that can make it hard to feel when you have sores, cracked skin, or infection. We have several certified Foot Care Nurses available to help you inspect your feet and keep them healthy. Foot care is by appointment only, so call us to schedule yours today.

Live life fully

Whether you need help managing your medications, taking care of your feet, help monitoring your A1C blood sugar level, or making healthier choices to avoid the onset of diabetes, call us at 208.686.1767. We’re here to help!
