Patient Success Stories

She learned how to get her diabetes under control

Earlier this year North Reading resident Kathleen McCullough noticed her vision was a little off so she went to the ophthalmologist, who referred her back to her primary care physician. There it was determined Kathleen had diabetes and needed to get her condition under control immediately.

Kathleen was referred to the Hallmark Health’s Diabetes and Endocrinology Center. She has been under the center’s care for approximately six months now.

During this time, Kathleen has worked with the center’s staff to develop the skills she needs to manage her diabetes. She has learned how to substitute foods, read nutrition labels and control portions – all in an effort to keep her condition in check. Kathleen also no longer blames herself for the onset of diabetes, something she struggled with after first being diagnosed.

When she began treatment Kathleen’s blood sugar was 394, which is much higher than the 120 that’s considered normal. Today Kathleen has her diabetes under control and says it is all thanks to the treatment and support she received from the physicians and nurses at the Center as well as her family and friends.

“I feel great and I attribute that to the tremendous care I received at the Diabetes and Endocrinology Center,” said Kathleen. “On a scale of one to 10, I would give the center a 15. They helped me get back on track and I’m so thankful.”
