Take control of diabetes at practice
THOSE at risk of, or with, diabetes at Monto can see a doctor at the Monto Family Practice for diagnosis, ongoing care, prevention and also screening of family histories of the condition.
The practice also runs chronic disease management based on a plan that guides patients through, and educates them about, the illness.
The Monto Family Practice has a pathology service with all blood testing facilities and the practice has access to diabetes education, foot care (podiatry), dietician services, endocrinology and ophthalmology.
These services are essential for diabetic care as the condition directly affects the blood vessels of the eye (diabetic retinopathy), kidney (diabetic nephropathy) and nerves (diabetic neuropathy).
