Saint Anthony Hospital Providing Holistic Care to those with Diabetes

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - HealthMore than 25.8 million children and adults (8.3 percent) in the U.S. have diabetes, with 7 million of these remaining undiagnosed. On a local level, residents of North Lawndale and Little Village suffer from an inordinate prevalence of pre-diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

While this information is concerning, there is help for those who suffer from diabetes and obesity right here in the community. Saint Anthony Hospital provides needed help through its nurse-managed Center for Diabetes, Nutrition, Obesity and Metabolism, by working with individuals, families, and groups to provide care at the advanced practice level.
