Diabetes has been described as a worldwide epidemic with the numbers of patients rising everywhere. In the United States it is the sixth leading cause of death by disease, and affects almost 17 million Americans. Frederick County surpasses the national average.
These statistics are alarming, considering the serious effects on the body when the disease is out of control or left untreated. Complications such as kidney failure, heart disease, stroke and blindness can result.
But there is hope and help available. At the FMH Diabetes Center, our highly-skilled team of diabetes clinicians can teach you how to live well with diabetes. Working with your healthcare provider, our team will assess your needs and create a plan of care to improve your quality of life on a daily basis, as well as to prevent the long-term complications of the disease.

Services are provided by our team of experienced diabetes clinicians in both the hospital setting and in our outpatient center.
