Dr. Sumer and the staff at ICPR Family Practice are passionate about treating diabetes. Whether you’re controlling blood sugar levels through diet alone or using insulin shots to help with management, we get you the tools you need to live an active, healthy life.
Experts in diabetic care and education, ICPR offers diabetic classes that teach you how to control and manage your blood sugar, so it doesn’t control you. This include carb counting tips! We also have a new tool available, iPro™ Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM), that will give us an even better picture of your glycemic patterns by testing your glucose levels continuously for three days. This new service will help us:
The iPro™ CGM is also easy to wear and use. No implant is necessary.... a tiny glucose sensor is simply inserted under the skin in a virtually painless process. Once inserted, the recorder (which is only about the size of a quarter) lays flat against your body and allows you to go about life as usual. It can even be worn swimming or in the shower! Working continuously, the iPro™ Continuous Glucose Monitor records while you work, play and sleep and provides us with important information that will help improve your diabetes treatment and balance your glucose levels.
