Ruth Yutzy, RN, BSN
Diabetes is a complex disease, and it requires daily self-management. Making healthy food choices, staying physically active, monitoring your blood sugar and taking medications as prescribed. It's also important to speak regularly with your diabetes care team to problem solve, reduce risks for complications and cope with lifestyle changes.
Successful self-management will help you feel better and reduce chances of developing complications such as heart disease, dental disease, eye disorders, kidney disease, nerve damage or more.
As a diabetes care and education specialist Ruth can help you learn how to take care of yourself — guide you through your treatment and help you with any fears, issues and problems you encounter along the way.
At Columbia County Health System, we are committed to preventative care and helping people with diabetes gain the right tools to manage their diabetes, and achieve the best health outcomes possible.
