What is Diabetes?
At Nexus HealthSpan, nurse practitioner Zachary Lott offers diabetes mellitus screenings and prevention plans for Mission Viejo, CA men and women. Millions of Americans are diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Diabetes occurs when blood glucose levels are higher than normal. The foods the majority of people eat become glucose — sugar — in the body, which then gives our bodies energy. At the same time, the pancreas makes insulin, which helps the glucose get into our cells. However, when a person has diabetes, their body can't make enough insulin or process it properly. Diabetes can lead to kidney failure, heart disease, and even blindness. It's crucial to manage diabetes as early as possible. Nexus HealthSpan can help prevent, diagnose, and treat diabetes.

What Can I Expect From Diabetes Prevention?
At Nexus HealthSpan, we believe that prevention and early detection of diabetes are important aspects of living a healthy life. We provide A1C, FPG (fasting plasma glucose), and OGT (oral glucose tolerance) tests to detect diabetes. Type 1 diabetes can't be prevented or cured, but it is managed with medication, insulin injections, and more. Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by losing weight, not smoking, and maintaining healthy blood pressure. Zachary Lott and his team are highly trained in diagnosing and treating diabetes and can develop a personalized prevention plan for patients with a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. If you have a family history of diabetes or are experiencing symptoms, contact our Mission Viejo, CA office to schedule diabetes testing.
Diabetes Prevention Reviews
Zach is great, he's so knowledgable about what he dose. I feel like I understand what cholesterol is better than my regular doctor does, after leaving his office. Although he was able to show me that I have plaque in my arteries on an ultrasound machine, he gave me a plan to address all of my concerns and what he though was medically necessary. I never knew that I had prediabetes, but after Zach went through my old medical records, it's something thats been passed over for years. I'm eating clean now, exercising more, and taking a couple of supplements and one medication. He even showed me research studies on everything that I am putting in my body. I haven't felt better about my health, ever. Knowing that my dad and my grandfather both died of a heart attack, I thought my fate was sealed, until now.
