Office Visits during COVID-19

The safety of our community members is very important to us.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to those attending our clinics or receiving services, HHS will implement the following CDC and IDPH guidelines to receive immunization services. We also have several new safety measures and disinfection policies in place.

Diabetes Awareness: Are You at Risk? By Christina Villasenor, RN, Nursing Intern, Village of Hoffman Estates

Diabetes continues to affect millions of people every year. Did you know foods that are consumed are turned into sugar also known as glucose? Glucose travels to all of the cells of the body through the bloodstream. The pancreas which produces insulin helps all the cells in the body absorb the glucose and use it for energy. Insulin also keeps blood glucose levels balanced. If you have diabetes your body has trouble controlling the amount of glucose in your blood. Either your pancreas isn’t producing insulin (Type 1) or your pancreas isn’t reacting to insulin as it should (Type 2). Having too much or too little glucose can damage other vital organs. It is important to know which type you have so, you and your doctor can come up with a treatment plan to control glucose levels either with insulin therapy, medication, and a healthy eating and exercise plan. Find out if you are at risk or have diabetes with the A1C (fingerstick) test offered at Health and Human Services for $15. To schedule an appointment, call 847-781-4850.
