Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. If it’s not properly managed, diabetes can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems. One in 12 Americans has diabetes – that’s more than 25 million people. And another 79 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Southwestern Pennsylvania in particular holds the unenviable distinction of having one of the highest incidence rates of diabetes in the country. That’s why St. Clair Hospital opened the most comprehensive Diabetes Center in the South Hills. It is specifically designed to help our community deal with this growing health issue. People with diabetes need the qualified expertise of endocrinologists, dietitians, and nurse educators to help them manage their condition and understand how it affects their lives. St. Clair Hospital’s Diabetes Center provides this expertise in a caring, convenient location.
