In 2015 we saw just over 1,000 patients. Of these, 102 already knew they had diabetes. Of those who we screened who did not know if they had diabetes, 10 tested in the diabetic range and 58 more tested in the pre-diabetic range. With the FINDRISC test provided to us by the Centro de Salud Javier Llosa Garcia, 346 patients are considered “high risk.”
29 enrolled in our ProCED program. Over the course of the year, we did 10 diabetes educational sessions and support group meetings with a total of just over 100 attendees. Topics covered include the basics of diabetes, nutrition, exercise, psychological aspects, medicine, foot care, cardiac health, and glucose control.
